Dropping a course
Dropping a course means a student wishes to drop an individual course but remain registered in other courses for the current semester. Students who will not be attending and wish to drop ALL courses for the semester, MUST submit a withdrawal form to the Registrar's Office in order to officially withdraw from the university for the semester. Please visit the Withdraw Information page of the Registrar's Office website, call 254-968-9419 or email email@example.com for additional information.
Students may drop an individual course online through the following class days for the specified semester without having to submit a course drop form:
- Fall/Spring: drop online through 3rd class day of the semester
- Summer session: drop online through 1st class day
Once the add/drop/late registration period has ended, students MUST submit a course drop form request to the Registrar's Office in order to be dropped from a class. Students must follow the drop procedure found below before a class will be dropped. Course drop forms MUST be submitted to the Registrar's Office by the indicated drop deadline.
*It is the student's responsibility to ensure all proper documentation is received by the Registrar's Office by the deadline to ensure the proper course is dropped. Students may contact the Registrar's Office at 254-968-9419 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to verify their course drop form has been received.

Complete the form
Once the registration period has ended, students must submit a Course Drop Request Form to the Registrar's Office in order to be dropped from a class. The form must be filled out completely and correctly before it will be considered.
Dropping to zero credit hours for the semester is considered a withdrawal. A Course Drop form will not be accepted as an official withdrawal request. In order to withdraw, students must submit an Official Withdrawal Request Form.
The Course Drop Request Form must be signed by an authorized advisor. Who can sign as the authorized advisor depends on the course type and campus location.
Depending on the student and/or the course, additional approval may be required before the drop can be processed.
Submit the form
There are several options for students to submit their completed, signed drop form:
- In Person at the front counter of the Registrar's Office located inside the Tarleton Center
- By Fax at (254) 968-9389
- By Email at email@example.com
