- You mad add courses on AU Access through the fifth (5) day of class.
- After the first day, you must contact the department offering the class. Only the departments can add students to classes after the first day. Advisors cannot add students to courses.
Departments set their own deadlines for adding classes. Some do not add after the first day. If you want to add, you must do it quickly. No classes may be added after the fifteenth day.
- You may drop a course until the 15th class day with no record on your transcript.
- From the 16th day until the final drop date, you may drop for any reason and a W will be on your transcript. A W means you were in the course, but withdrew. Although you do not want a pattern of W’s on your transcript, one or two over the course of your college career should not be a concern.
- Although dropping before the drop date has no academic penalties, you will not get any money back and if you drop below 12 hours it could affect your financial aid, scholarships, or insurance. Please check with your insurance company and Auburn’s Financial Aid Office before dropping below 12 hours.
- Before the drop date, be realistic about your chances of obtaining the grade you want in a course. Dropping may be the best idea.
- Also, be certain to check your schedule and be sure that you are registered only for courses you plan to finish. You are responsible for knowing your enrollment status at all times.
- After the final drop date, you may not drop a course except in the most extenuating circumstances, with documentation and permission from the Dean's Office. Please do not petition for a drop to the Dean's Office unless you have experienced a significant illness, illness or a death in the immediate family, or something similar.
- You may NOT drop after the drop date because you are failing or do not need the course. Most students seeking to drop classes late only want to do so to avoid getting a poor grade. This will not be approved.
Even if your drop request is approved, if you are failing the course at the time of the drop, your professor may assign a WF, which will appear on your transcript and will calculate in your GPA as an F.
