Dropping A Class

During Priority, Open Enrollment - by Census:

No record will be made of enrollment (no grade of "W") in courses that are dropped by the semester's CENSUS date. To drop a course use the online registration system (MyCoyote) by the census date specified for each semester. Last day to drop without permissions is the census date specified for each semester (see below).

Census Deadline

Drops will not be possible after the Census deadline except for serious and compelling reasons. Drops after census are then considered withdrawals. If you need to withdraw from a class or classes, you will be required to provide supporting documentation in order for the request to be considered.  Furthermore, withdrawals will require the approvals of the class instructor, department chair and the College Dean of the student’s major. Use the online Permission Request to request a withdrawal. The Permission Request can be found in the myCoyote portal, located under the My Academics tile.  

It is the students’ responsibility to verify their class schedule prior to the Census deadline as they will receive a grade for every course in which they are shown to be officially registered. It is also the students’ responsibility to drop by the Census deadline from any class(es) which they do not plan to attend and complete. Although an instructor may initiate to drop a student from a class based on the Administrative Drop Policy, students should not assume that the instructor would drop anyone from a class. (Refer to the university bulletin for information regarding the Administrative Drop Policy.)
