Last Day to Drop Course(s) with “W” : Mini-Semester options

Monday October 17th is the last day to drop a course with a “W”.


If you need to maintain financial aid or are looking for a substitute course, make sure you check the list of mid-semester, short courses or Mini-Semester Courses available.
