Course Drop and Withdrawal
You may drop (with refund) a course on Minerva up to and including the fourth (4th) scheduled class, and withdraw (without refund) from a course from the 5th to 8th scheduled class*. A withdrawal means that a grade of "W" will appear on your record and you will not be eligible for a fee refund. See the specific dates outlined in Key Dates, Summer 2012.
Students who do not attend classes and examinations and/or who do not formally withdraw will receive a grade of "J" on their transcripts. If, after the eighth day of class, illness or special circumstances force you to stop attending class, permission may be granted for an official withdrawal (without refund). In such cases, you must apply in writing to the Associate Dean/Director of the faculty in which you are registered. If permission is granted, a grade of "W" or "WF" will be assigned.
If the course is cancelled due to insufficient enrolment, fees are refunded in full. There are no refunds under any circumstance if you withdraw from a course after the fourth scheduled day of classes (which include lectures and laboratories).
* Note: The add/drop and withdrawal deadlines may be different for intensive courses. Please consult the course description for details.
