Add a Course
NOTE: A student who wishes to drop all courses should refer to instructions for Withdrawing from Term.
Students deciding not to attend their elected courses are NOT automatically withdrawn or dropped from these courses and remain liable for all tuition, fees, and penalties. Students must follow the proper drop procedures of the University.
Dropping a Class with no Penalty
Students may drop courses via the Student Information System or through the Office of the Registrar during the first two weeks of a full term, or the first week of a half term or mini-term.
Forms for the purpose of dropping a course may be picked up from the college in which the student is enrolled or the registration and records Forms page. Completed forms must be returned to the Office of the Registrar for processing. The effective date of the drop is the date the drop form is received and processed by the Office of the Registrar.
The deadline to drop courses with no academic or financial penalty is available on the Academic Calendar.
Students may use the Student Information System to drop a class during the first 9 weeks of a full term, or the first 4.5 weeks of a half term or mini-term. The Web is available from 8:00 a.m. - 11:45 p.m.
If a class is dropped after the first two weeks of a full term, or the first week of a half term or mini-term, a grade of W is recorded on the academic transcript.
NOTE: If a student has a registration hold, a class cannot be dropped via web registration. A drop can be requested by completing this form, and sending it to UMDRegistration@umich.edu (within the established deadline dates listed on the Academic Calendar).
To drop all classes or the last class, students should contact the Office of the Registrar or submit this form to UMDRegistration@umich.edu. Students cannot drop all classes (or the last class) via web registration.
The deadline to drop classes with no academic or financial penalty is available on the Academic Calendar.
Dropping a Course with Penalty
After the first two weeks of a full term or the first week of a half term or mini-term, there is no reduction in fee assessments for dropped courses. In addition, a "W" will be recorded on the academic record for the course(s) dropped after this deadline.
The deadline to drop courses with an academic and financial penalty is available on the Academic Calendar. Any exceptions for dropping courses after this date must be approved by petition to the college in which the student is enrolled.
Dropping a Less Than One-Month Mini-Course
A student may drop from a less than one-month mini-course on or before the first class meeting of such a course without financial penalty. Thereafter, full tuition will be assessed and academic record will reflect the symbol for withdrawal ("W")
