Changes to Course Enrolment

Students may add, drop or swap course selections up to the last day to add or drop classes as specified in the Academic Schedule for each term. Course additions and swaps are limited to seat availability. Students may withdraw from a course without academic penalty up to the last day to withdraw date as specified in the Academic Schedule for each term.

  • No record will appear on the transcript for any course dropped before the last day to add or drop, and students may be eligible for a fee adjustment if applicable.
  • If a course is dropped after the last day to add or drop, the course will appear on the transcript with a “W” grade and the student will not be eligible for any fee adjustment. The student will be responsible for all fees and tuition, even after course withdrawal.

Note: Add or drop changes may alter current fee assessments. Student balances are available on myStudentSystem. Refund information can be found under the Refund Policy.

Students are responsible to make any desired changes to their enrolment on myStudentSystem.

Notifying an instructor, ceasing to attend classes, or stopping payment will not be accepted as a course drop or withdrawal.

Note: As all courses may not be offered every term, students should consult the schedule of courses for each term before dropping a course.

Students with Disabilities

Students who may require accommodations due to a disability are advised to discuss their needs with Access and Disability Resources ( Students should also advise instructors at the beginning of the course if accommodations are requested.

Cancelled Class Statement

Circumstances may arise that necessitate the cancellation of a class section, as determined by the Dean of the relevant School or Faculty. Should it be necessary to cancel a class section, every reasonable effort will be made to contact the students enrolled in that class section, and wherever possible to enroll those students in another section of the same course, or in another course that satisfies program requirements. If no suitable alternative is available, a refund will be issued in accordance with the Tuition and Fees policy.
