Last Change to Add or Drop courses

This Friday, February 18, 2022 is the last day to register or add courses. After this date, tuition and a $25 processing fee will be charged for change of registration. After February 26, students withdrawing from courses will receive a grade of “W” on the permanent record.

If you are considering dropping a class from your spring schedule, please follow these guidelines:

  • If your total number of registered credits (which does include MATH010) is fewer than 12, you are a part-time student, which will impact SEED eligibility and other financial aid you may be entitled to receive. SEED requires a minimum of 24 earned credits after the spring semester.
  • If you are already having difficulty in any course, you may be able to find an alternative. However, students should be cautious about adding a course this late in the semester because several courses have met up to 4 times, and assignments may be due soon. Courses should not be added at this point without contacting the instructor first.
  • If there is a hold placed on your records by Student Financial Services (you can see this on your UDSIS Student Center page), you must clear this up before you can add a course to your schedule. Please contact Student Financial Services at (302) 831-2126 if you’re in this circumstance.

If you have any questions or concerns about your schedule, please contact your campus academic advisor(s).
