C - Changes in Registration

C-1. Adding a Course

A student may add a full semester course online through the sixth day of the semester. A student may add a course with instructor approval through the tenth day of the semester. These periods are prorated for accelerated or short courses.

C-2. Dropping a Course

A student may drop a full semester course through the tenth day of the semester without a grade of W. This period is prorated for accelerated or short courses. Students may not drop a course by simply staying out of class.

C-3. Withdrawing from a Course

Beginning with the eleventh day of the semester and ending with the tenth week of the semester a student may withdraw from a course. During this period a grade of W will be recorded on the student’s record and will count against their 21 credit withdrawal limit (see regulation C-4). This period is prorated for accelerated or short courses.

C-4. Credit Withdrawal Limitation

The number of credits that a student may withdraw from during his or her undergraduate career at UI is limited to 21 credits.  If a student attempts to drop a course(s) that would bring the total credits he or she will have withdrawn from above 21, the student will not be allowed to do so. When a student withdraws from the university the credits in the courses for the semester do not count against the withdrawal credit limitation (see regulation G).
