Adding and Dropping Classes

  • If you decide to drop a class, you must drop within the refund schedule (printed in Learning Opportunities) in order to receive a refund.
  • The refund schedule is divided into the following refund periods: 100%, 50% and 25%. The last day to drop with any kind of refund is usually within the first two weeks of classes for fall, winter and spring terms. For summer deadlines, see the Office of the Registrar website.
  • If you drop after the refund period, you will not receive a refund.
  • If you drop after the "last day to drop without entry to academic record" listed in Learning Opportunities, you may receive a "W" (official withdrawal) from that course. However, if you are failing at the time you decide to drop, the professor may assign a grade of "F." You need to discuss this with your professor and explain your situation.
  • You can add a class at the OneStop Student Service Center (220 University Pavilion, 2nd Floor) or website (www.onestop.uc.edu).
  • After the seventh calendar day of the quarter, additions to a class schedule require a faculty signature and a signature from the college office offering the course.
