How do I drop or withdraw from a class?


Dropping or Withdrawing From Classes  

A student who wishes to reduce, but not entirely eliminate, his or her credit load may drop a course or courses via Student Planning. 

The last day to drop a course without academic penalty will be assigned for each term or semester based on 65% completion of the length of the course. Dates will be published on the Academic Records Drop/Withdrawal web page. The 65% rule also applies to international teaching locations.

If you want to drop all courses, even if it is only one course, this would constitute a withdrawal. You will need to submit a withdrawal form, which can be found at Withdrawing from a term or semester does not withdraw you from TROY entirely, it simply allows you to withdraw from the current term or semester. 

Dropping Classes Via Student Planning

To drop classes, log in to Self-Service, go to Student Planning, click on Plan & Schedule, navigate to the term or semester in which you need to drop a course, and click drop on the course. You will select update. If you do not see a drop button, please check for holds on your account. If you have a hold, you can contact your campus Records Office or your ASA for assistance.
