Session dates

The majority of classes are offered in the 15-week-long Fall and Spring semester called the A1 or Regular session.

Certain other classes run for fewer weeks, start on a different week, or have other rules about deadlines. The sessions for these classes have alphabet codes like AJJ. When you enroll, you can search for classes in specific sessions.

Find the right dates for your enrolled classes in Course Search & Enroll. In the app, select “Session dates & deadlines” in the section details — which opens a page showing the add and drop dates for that class.

Session Dates and Deadlines pop-up

DR/W Transcript Notation Date = deadline to drop a class without a record of that class appearing on your transcript (after, it shows as DR).

Add Class/Add Waitlist Deadline = deadline to add a class or get on a wait list, without needing permission of the department offering the class.

For any session other than A1 (Regular), use the Add Class/Add Waitlist date as the deadline to edit class options on your own. Options include changing Honors Optional status or credits earned for a variable-credit class in Course Search & Enroll and pass/fail or credit/audit status in Student Center. After the deadline, you can request Honors and variable-credit changes via the Course Change Request Form in Student Center with the approval of instructor/department/academic dean (depending on the action). Requests for pass/fail policy exceptions after the deadline should be directed to your academic dean’s office.

Drop Class Deadline = deadline to drop a class without needing approval of your academic dean.

*Due to the COVID-19 instructional disruption, the Drop Class Deadline for the Regular-UGRD and Regular-GRAD sessions have been changed from March 27 to April 17, 2020.
