Adding and Dropping Courses
Students can add a course up to the end of the third week of the semester and drop a course up to the end of the seventh week. We strongly recommend that first-year students talk with their faculty adviser before dropping a course. Students can still petition to drop a class up until the twelfth week, but a "W" (for withdrawal) will appear on the transcript. This isn't necessarily something to worry about, but a series of these might be off-putting to graduate schools and potential employers.
