Drop & Add Classes

Need to change your schedule? Read this first.

Before you drop or add a class, make sure you understand the rules. Your timing makes all the difference when it comes to whether or not you’re hit with extra fees or a bad grade.

Dropping or adding classes can affect your financial aid, scholarship status, or tuition cost. If you do decide to drop or add a class, be sure to talk with your academic advisor first. If you’re worried about what will happen with your finances, consult with student financial services.

When to swap classes

If you’re an undergraduate student enrolled in 12–18 credit hours, be sure to drop and add at the same time—ideally, on the same day. This action, sometimes called “course swapping,” will keep your tuition from changing. You may be charged additional fees if you don’t submit a drop and add together.
