* Add/Drop period:  The timeline to add and/or drop courses is based on your program, and the number of weeks you’re registered in for a specific term (see below). Not all programs allow add/drop. Please consult your Academic Chair or Coordinator to ensure you can add or drop a course from your program.

Term Length Add/Drop period

**Transfer credit and recognition of prior learning: The transfer credit and recognition of prior learning application deadline is based on the number of weeks you’re registered in for a term. You must submit your application by your program’s add/drop deadline to be eligible for a tuition refund.

***Withdrawal Deadline: The last day to officially withdraw from a course or program and receive "W" grades. To be assigned a “W” grade, a student must withdraw prior to completing 70% of the course/program.
