Understand How to Drop Online Courses or Withdraw from Online Courses
Many students become confused by the difference between “dropping” and “withdrawing” and how these affect tuition charges and grades.
Drop is the term RSU uses if a student drops all of the classes before the final drop date. Dropping courses removes all tuition charges and all record of enrollment. No grades are recorded. Withdrawal occurs when a student withdraws from one or all of their classes after the final drop date. When a withdrawal occurs students receive an action of “W” for the given courses and payment is still required for the courses. Please review the course schedule for the last drop date and withdrawal dates.
Adding or Dropping an Online Class
Students can add classes the first 5 days of the fall and spring semester and the first 2.5 days for the summer semester.
