Making schedule changes (including auditing coursework) may impact your financial aid disbursement amounts and/or future financial aid eligibility. If you are receiving financial aid please seek advising in Student Services prior to adding, dropping, withdrawing or auditing coursework. Refer to the UAA Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Statement for more information about maintaining your financial aid eligibility.
Dropping a course means the course will not appear on a student transcript. In most cases, a refund is issued.
Students may only drop a course at the beginning of the semester. Deadlines are determined by class start date and usually occur within the first two weeks of the semester. Short classes have prorated deadlines.
Withdrawing from a class will result in a "W" grade. Students are encouraged to meet with their instructor or an advisor before withdrawing. Financial aid may be impacted.
For semester length courses, students may withdraw after the drop period, through the twelfth week of the semester. Short classes have prorated deadlines.
Auditing is registering for a class, but not earning a grade or credits. An "AU" grade is earned.
Instructor approval is required to change to audit. Audits must be selected during the add/drop period. Short classes have prorated deadlines.
If you have missed a deadline, you may qualify to request an exception.
