During the first week of the quarter, students can drop a class through Banner, and the course will not appear on the transcript. Here’s how:

In the second week of the quarter, students can still withdraw from classes online. However the course(s) will appear with a “W” on the transcript. A “W” does not affect GPA.

After the second week of the quarter and through the seventh week, undergraduate students must submit UG Course Drop (Week 3-8) through their Banner account in order to withdraw from a class. Graduate and Doctoral students must submit GRDR Course Drop (Week 3-8) through their Banner account. Both forms can be accessed using the instructions below. The course will appear on the transcript with a “W” grade.
