Change in Add/Drop Deadlines

Dear UConn Community:

I am writing to share updates on course add/drop deadlines for the spring 2021 semester.

  • 10th Day Deadline: Because of the current snowstorm, the deadline to add or drop a course has been extended from today to this Wednesday, Feb. 3. Any students who drop a course through this Wednesday, Feb. 3, will be able to do so and not have that course appear on their record. Courses dropped after this date will have a “W” for withdrawal recorded on the academic record. See Adding and Dropping Courses for Undergraduates and Graduate School Academic Regulations).
  • Late Withdraw Deadline: The Senate Scholastic Standards Committee has extended the deadline for late withdrawals by undergraduates from the 9th week of classes to the 14th week of classes. The same extended deadline will be available to graduate students. Both undergraduates and graduate students must receive advisor approval for a late withdrawal. Students will be able to elect this option through Wednesday, April 28.

Please note that the above deadlines do not apply to students at UConn Law, Medicine, or Dental Medicine.

Students should consult with their advisor for more guidance on withdrawing from a course.

Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs
