Adding and Dropping Courses

Students may adjust their schedules until the closure of the Add/Drop period of each term at the university. 

 

Course Add

During the pre-enrollment period through the end of the second week of classes for the term, all students, with the exception of first term freshmen, may add courses that are free from restrictions/permissions, by using BANNER Web for Students. Instructor or academic unit approval is conditional on class size limitations. Regardless of when you add a course, your are responsible for meeting all course requirements as mandated by the specific course syllabus.

Recommendations to Students:

Meet with your academic advisor if:

 

  • You encounter a course restriction/permission—contact your academic advisor to resolve the restriction;
  • You have a course enrollment request beginning with week two of the term—meet with your academic advisor for review;
  • You are a freshmen—you need to meet with your academic advisor for any/all course schedule adjustments;
  • You are a new undergraduate transfer student;
  • You have newly been readmitted.

If a course is being added to your record past the end of the add/drop registration period you will need to contact your academic advisor to review the course registration.

 

How to Add a Class

  • Log in to DrexelOne
  • Select “Academics” Tab
  • Click the “Add/Drop Classes” link in the "Registration" channel
  • Select “term of registration”
  • Type in Course Registration (CRN) numbers in CRN addition fields
  • Press “Submit”

 

Course Drop

Please note that “dropping” a course and “withdrawing” from a course are distinct actions and are governed by different policies (see Course Withdrawal Policy).

For both graduate and undergraduate students, courses may only be dropped during the “drop period” lasting from the beginning of the enrollment period through the end of the second week of the quarter. Dropping a course results in the course being removed from your academic record without a “W” appearing on the transcript—specifically, neither the course nor the grade of “W” will appear on your transcript. Freshmen and new first-term transfer students must meet with their academic advisors to drop courses during the first quarter. Undergraduate upper-class and graduate students may use BannerWeb to drop courses; no approvals are required for upper-class and graduate students.

You can drop a course for the term in which you’re enrolled by using BannerWeb for students. Approval of the instructor is not required to drop a course (but is required to withdraw from a course).

For “accelerated courses,” which normally last five weeks, the drop period is limited to the first week of the course. Thus, for accelerated courses given during weeks one through five of the regular term, the drop period is week one; for accelerated courses given during weeks six through ten of the regular term, the drop period is week six (of the regular term).

 

How to Drop a Course

You may drop your courses through your DrexelOne account.

  • Click the “Add/Drop Classes” link in the "Registration" channel
  • Select “term of registration”
  • In the course registration select “Web Drop” from the dropdown registration menu options
  • Press “Submit”

If you cannot access your course registration through DrexelOne, you will need to contact your academic advisor to review your registration record.
