Drop date approaches

Kelsey Husnick

Already missed a class or two? Realizing that you took on too many credit hours? These may be early warning signs that a certain class just isn’t going to work out for you this semester.

The deadline to drop classes is Sunday, Jan. 27, which means you can still get rid of a course without receiving a “W” on your transcript.

Bob Springer, academic advisor for the College of Communication and Information, said the main reason students choose to drop a class is because, “they bit off more than they can chew, they realized that a specific course is too demanding and they want to lighten their load.”

Another reason may be because work schedules change or other extracurricular activities conflict with a class time, Springer said.

Students do not have to make an advising appointment in order to drop a class. They can do it themselves by accessing the “Student Tools & Courses” tab on FlashLine.

After the drop period, the last day to withdraw from a class is Mar. 24.
