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.
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:
- You must resign by 11:59 pm EST on the last day to resign date for your transaction to be accepted and processed within the deadline.
- You should speak with your academic and/or financial aid advisor regarding the impact of dropping or resigning a course. Be aware that dropping or resigning may impact financial aid, medical insurance eligibility, sequence of required courses and/or time to graduation.
- Students are responsible for dropping and/or resigning their own courses, and will be financially responsible for any resulting tuition and fees in accordance with university policies. Students who fail to drop or resign courses within the allowable timeframe will be graded for the course, and will be responsible for resulting tuition and fees.
- When resigning from a course, undergraduate students should determine if the course is impacted. Impacted courses cannot be repeated during the fall or spring semesters. (See Priority Registration for Students Attempting a Course for the First Time.)
