Drop & Add Procedures

Late drop and add (eDrop and eAdd)

Students can use Late Drop/Add Classes to request changes to their schedules from the second week of classes through the automatic withdrawal deadline for the semester.

If you receive a notification that a student has submitted an eDrop/eAdd request, you’re responsible for reviewing and approving or disapproving the request within 14 days. The Office of the Registrar will cancel any requests more than 14 days old.

Paper drop/add forms are still available from advisors or school recorders. The Office of the Registrar will accept these forms with the required signatures and grade assignments.

Students in University College and freshmen in the School of Engineering and Technology cannot use eDrop/eAdd without seeing their advisor first.

Managing eDrop/eAdd requests

If a student has submitted a request to add or drop your course, you’ll see a “students waiting to add” or “students waiting to withdraw” alert button in the Canvas user interface. If your Action List doesn’t have any pending eAdd or eDrop requests, these buttons aren’t visible.
