What You Need to Know: Dropping Courses

How to Drop – If you can self-drop

1. Use WebAdvisor to drop using the register/drop function.

2. Follow the instruction in the video tutorial

3. Confirm the course has been removed from your record by viewing your schedule. The course should now be in yellow on your timetable, and it should say “Planned” in the menu to the left.


How to Drop – If you cannot self-drop

Students will not be able to drop courses on WebAdvisor for any of the following reasons:

1. They have a pending case of Academic Misconduct or have been found guilty of Academic Misconduct in the current semester.

2. They have not paid their tuition fees and have a financial sanction.

If you cannot drop a course yourself, please submit an Undergraduate Course Request. Your Academic Advisor will review your request with your Program Head. If approved, the course will be dropped for you.

Course drop period

* Courses may be dropped up to the last class day.

* Specific dates for a semester are provided in the Schedule of Dates, found in the Academic Calendar.


Dropping a course after the deadline

* Dropping a course after the deadline is only permitted in exceptional circumstances.

* Students should consult their Academic Advisor and must submit a request for Academic Consideration.

* Requests for Academic Consideration are only approved for documented medical, psychological, or compassionate reasons.



* A full course load (i.e., 2.0 – 3.0 credits) defines the tuition fee for full time study. No refund is generated if a student remains a full-time student after dropping a course.

* See the Refund Schedule.

* Refunds will be generated to the student in the same method their initial payment was made (i.e., through their bank, or their credit card).
