If you need help, see the STAR videos.

As soon as you know you will not be attending a class, you should officially drop it so that you won't receive a failing grade. A grade of “F” may be issued to students for courses they are no longer attending but have not officially dropped. A grade of “W” will be issued to students for courses they officially drop by the deadline. You are responsible for paying for your tuition and fees for the courses you are enrolled in regardless if you are attending or not. Details on dropping all your classes.

For Part of Term (modular or accelerated) courses, which have different start and end dates, that are completed, the appropriate grade as assigned by the instructor will be recorded on your permanent academic record. Critical deadlines for these course are in the Part of Term table.
