Spring 2020 Add/Drop Deadlines

Module Courses (Short Duration/Length)

Module courses are courses that meet only for 4-5 weeks during the semester. They have different add/drop dates according to when they meet.

 

Johnson (NBAY) Courses: Most NBAY courses have varied start/end dates, the last date to add/drop is explicitly indicated in the notes field on the Class Roster. After this date, students can drop the course only with Faculty Permission and will be issued a “W” on their transcript. To drop without a W, please do so before the drop deadline date.

 

Tech Module Courses: (i.e. all TECH Studio Electives & TECH 5320 Law for Non-Lawyers): the last date to add/drop is explicitly indicated in the notes field on the Class Roster. After this date, students can drop the course only with Faculty Permission and will be issued a “W” on their transcript. To drop without a W, please do so before the drop deadline date.

 

IMPORTANT! Due to a functionality of the Registration System, Module courses  are set up in a way that if you want to drop this type of class, you must email us directly to request a drop according to that courses’ deadline dates  (this applies to Studio Electives mostly).  Some classes also may not begin until later in the term, in this instance plea email if you want to enroll as you most likely will not have access to do this on your end (your add access ends on February 4th)!  As always, please email the Student Services Team if you need any assistance during enrollment!

 

For any arranged courses, students can drop the course after the first class session but BEFORE the start of its second class meeting. After the course meets for the 2nd time, only extreme circumstances will only be considered with faculty permission to drop the course.
