Registrar: Dates to remember (starting Friday)
The University of Wisconsin-Parkside Office of the Registrar reminds advisors of some important upcoming dates for students to drop classes. These include:
- Friday, March 1: Last day to drop without a 'W' transcript notation.
- Friday, March 22: Last day for self-service drop or withdraw.
The university's drop policy states, for semester-length courses, a student may drop any course during the first half (i.e. the first seven weeks) of the semester. Beginning with the eighth week through the eleventh week of the semester, a student may request permission to drop a course only for extraordinary, non-academic reasons.
Before requesting permission to drop, the student should discuss his/her circumstances with the instructor. Any such request must be submitted to the Advising Center no later than the Friday of the eleventh week of instruction.
Requests denied, or received after the deadline, are reviewed by the Academic Actions Committee. Granting of requests by the Academic Actions Committee is not automatic. Students should not assume their requests would be granted.The Registrar's Office will determine comparable deadlines for courses less than a semester in length. See the course schedule for more detail.
