Dropping Classes

Dropping Classes Before the Add/Drop Deadline

If you no longer want to be in a class, you will need to officially remove yourself by dropping the class online. You can do this at no cost until the add/drop deadline. To drop your class(es), follow these steps:

  1. Login to MyMAP and go to the Register tab.
  2. Go to the semester and find class you want to drop.
  3. Click "Drop" next to the class.

Dropping ALL Classes
Go to the Discontinuance website to learn how to drop all of your classes. If you do not take classes for one semester, you will be taking a leave of absence. You cannot take a leave of absence the first semester you're admitted.

Be aware that if you drop all your classes once the semester or term has begun, a withdraw date will be posted on your transcript.

Dropping Classes After the Add/Drop Deadline

If you need to remove yourself from a class after the Add/Drop deadline, your option is to withdraw. You have until the withdraw deadline to decide, which is the 10th week of a semester or 6th week of a term. A "W" grade will be put on your transcript. It is not a negative mark, but a neutral grade that does not affect your GPA. You will also be charged $10 per class. Withdrawing may affect your scholarship, financial aid, tuition, housing or employment if you withdraw below a certain number of credit hours.

To withdraw from one of your classes, follow these steps:

  1. Login to MyMAP and go to the Register tab
  2. Go to the semester and find class you want to withdraw
  3. Click "Withdraw" next to the class

After the Withdraw Deadline
If a non-academic extenuating circumstance arises after the Withdraw deadline, you may petition to be withdrawn. If the petition is denied, you will get whatever grade you've earned in the class.

Incomplete Contracts
If you do not want to withdraw, but would like to finish the class, you may request an Incomplete Contract if you have attended and are passing the class at the time of the discontinuance deadline.

Withdrawing ALL Classes
Go to the Discontinuance website to learn how to withdraw from all of your classes.  If you do not finish classes for one semester, you will be taking a leave of absence. 

Have scholarships or financial aid?
If you choose to withdraw or discontinue, it could affect your aid. Check out the financial aid withdrawal and discontinuance policies.
