Schedule Revisions and Withdrawals

Schedule Revisions

Late schedule revisions occur when students add, drop, or modify a class after University deadlines.

Forms Required for Schedule Revisions

  • Schedule Revision Form: Required for all late schedule revisions. The form is available in departmental offices and the Academic Programs Office. 
  • Supplemental Data Form: Required to add a course after the deadline, drop below full-time, change to Credit only, or change from Credit to Audit after the deadline. The instructor signs this form first; the advisor signs section 3.
  • Dropping Below Full-Time Form: This form lists possible implications for dropping below full-time standing. Students must sign to indicate that they are aware of these issues

Deadline: Students must submit all revision requests to the CALS Academic Programs Office by 5:00 pm on the Friday two weeks before the last day of classes.(Academic Programs can time stamp forms, and Registration and Records will honor that stamp.)

Certain late schedule revisions require additional documentation for approval:

  • Dropping a course
  • Changing a course to Credit only
  • Changing a course from Credit to Audit (This change can be approved if there is an extenuating circumstance, for example, a medical condition or personal crisis or hardship.)

The documentation must come from a medical or counseling professional. Depending on the situation, supporting documentation from religious officials, funeral homes, and employers may be acceptable. Students with such hardships but no documentation should visit the Counseling Center for assistance.

In most cases, these courses will remain on the transcript but will be assigned a grade of "W" for withdrawal, and will not affect the student’s GPA. Review the Adding and Dropping Courses policy for more information. 


Students with extenuating circumstances can initiate the official withdrawal process after the enrollment deadline through the Counseling Center. See the list of conditions permissible to withdraw from the university after the census date.
