Waitlist Policy

Each department has a different policy for handling waitlists. Sometimes waitlists are managed by the course faculty, other times they can be managed by program directors or an office. Make sure you're reaching out to the right person by referencing the university's Waitlist Policy.

Add, Drop or Withdraw from a Course

 Adding, dropping, or withdrawing from a course is a process: it has deadlines and can affect both your transcript and your tuition. If you are considering these options, thoroughly review the University Registrar's Course Add, Drop & Withdrawal Process.

Academic Calendar

Plan your year. The Academic Calendar contains important dates, including registration dates, class start dates, course add/drop deadlines, and days there are no classes.
