Friday, November 15 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. Students need to submit Credit/No-Credit Form to the Graduate College.

Friday, November 15 is the last day to drop an individual course or withdraw from ALL semester courses from their Fall registration without a grade of W. To drop a course, students must submit a Late Registration Form to the Graduate College. To fully withdraw from the term, 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 these actions are encouraged first to discuss their decision with their adviser and/or program.
