Drop/Add/Resign Courses

Visit your HUB Student center (via MyUB, UBITName required) to add and drop courses. A course is not “dropped” until you process the request in your HUB Student Center.


To learn the drop or resign dates associated with a class, click on the Enrollment Deadlines link beneath the course information.

This shows a screenshot depicting where to find the Enrollment Deadlines link at the bottom of the section. In this image the link is circled in red.

Drop/Add Deadlines for Standard (Regular Session) Classes

During the fall and spring semesters, you may change standard (15 week Regular session) classes on your schedule (adding or dropping courses) at any time between your enrollment appointment until the end of the 7th day that classes are in session, including Saturdays. Courses dropped during this period will not appear on your transcript, and you are not financially responsible for these courses.

Drop/Add Deadlines for Non-Standard Classes

UB offers a number of courses outside of the standard 15-week schedule. For these courses, drop/add dates are based on a proportion of the class equal to that for the standard session. For specific session dates, see your HUB Student Center.

Financial Liability Deadlines

Even if you drop a class by the drop deadline, you may still be required to pay a portion of tuition and fees associated with the class. Be sure to review the financial liability deadlines.

Resigning a Course

During the fall and spring semesters, from the 7th day of classes until the end of the 11th week of classes, you may visit your HUB Student Center (via MyUB, UBITName and password required) to resign from one or more of your classes. The result of this action is that an “R” remains on your transcript as a neutral indicator of the action. There may be a 50% – 100% tuition penalty for resigning a course, depending on when you resign the course. See Financial Liability Deadlines.

Note: Summer and winter sessions and non-standard fall and spring classes have course-specific deadlines to make changes to your schedule. Refer to the summer sessions registration dates and financial liability deadlines.

Please also consider the following before resigning from a class:
