May 5 Reading Day Deadlines

Do you have an Incomplete from Fall 2015? May 5 is the last day for a faculty member to submit a grade to change an I grade or DFR grade in a non-thesis course from Fall 2015 to prevent an F by rule on your academic record. The F may affect Academic Standing which is calculated at the end of the semester.

May 5 is the deadline to drop a Spring 2016 semester course with a W recorded. To drop a course, you will need to complete a Late Course Change form with the approval of your academic program. A W will be recorded on your academic record for the course.

May 5 is the deadline to withdraw from ALL semester courses. To withdraw from all Spring 2016 semester courses, you will need to complete a Withdrawal/Cancellation form and obtain a signature from your academic program. If you are an international student, you will need to get a signature from International Student Scholar Services. W’s will be recorded on your academic record.

May 5 is the deadline to add a Spring 2016 semester course. You will need to complete a Late Course Change form and obtain the approval of the course instructor and your academic program. If the course is from a department other than your academic program, you will also need to obtain the approval of the enrolling department.

Late Course Change forms and Withdrawal/Cancellation forms need to be delivered to the Graduate College, 204 Coble Hall, before 5:00 p.m. on Reading Day, Thursday, May 5.
