Dropping or Adding Courses
All dropping, adding, and changing courses must be arranged by the student through the Registrar’s Office in order to be considered official. A student wishing to drop or add a course must complete the schedule change (if prior to the start of the semester) through the UMHB online registration system accessible via MyCampus or (if on or after the start of the semester) by contacting the Registrar's Office in person or via email. Schedule changes may not be conducted over the phone. Students receiving VA benefits must also provide information on schedule changes to the UMHB VA Office.
Courses may be dropped as follows. Students should refer to the website for the exact dates of each drop period as these dates will vary:
- The Pre-Census Period: If a course is dropped before or on the census date, no grade or record of the class will appear on the student’s transcript.
- The “W” Period: If a course is dropped during the “W” Period, the class is recorded on the student’s transcript with a grade of “W”.
- The “WP/WQ” Period: If a course is dropped during the “WP/WQ” Period, the class is recorded on the student’s transcript with a grade of “WP” or” WQ” as reported by the instructor.
- No course may be dropped after the end of the “WP/WQ” Period.
Any student who stops attending a class but fails to officially drop the course through the Registrar’s Office will be given a failing grade in the class.
