Dropping Courses

Friday, November 17 is the last day for graduate students to drop ALL Fall semester courses from their Fall registration without a grade of W and thus withdraw from Fall semester. Students need to complete a Withdrawal/Cancellation form and obtain their department’s signature and, in the case of International Students, a signature from International Student Scholar Services. Students considering this action are encouraged first to discuss their decision with their adviser and/or program.

Friday, November 17 is the last day to drop individual full term Fall semester courses without a grade of W. Students need to submit a Late Course Change form to the Graduate College to complete the process, but first are encouraged to discuss their decision with their adviser and/or program. Dropping a course may affect progress toward degree completion, so the decision is best done in consultation with a student’s program.

Credit/ No Credit

Friday, November 17 is the last day to change a course to the credit/no-credit grading option for a Fall semester course or to change from the credit/no-credit grading option to a regular grade. Adviser approval is required. Please consult with your program if you are considering this grading option for any course because course and department restrictions may apply.

For the second year, the Graduate College will be organizing a doctoral hooding ceremony on December 16 for August and December doctoral graduates.

The ceremony will include comments from Chancellor Robert J. Jones, Interim Provost John P. Wilkin, and Wojtek Chodzko-Zajko, Dean of the Graduate College. Deans from each college and school will be present to congratulate students on their achievements. The event will be also be livestreamed for family and friends who are unable to attend the ceremony in person. More information is posted on the GC website at http://www.grad.illinois.edu/hooding/december.

The deadline for student to register is December 4. However, if they are designating a faculty hooder, we ask them to register this week to allow time for us to order their faculty member’s regalia.
