Adding Courses

Students may add courses without administrative approval through the "official last day to enroll" via MyView , or in person.  To view the official last day to enroll (enter a course for credit), visit the semester calendar on the Office of the Registrar's Home Page

Dropping Courses

No student may cease attendance without formally withdrawing or dropping courses after classes begin. 

Students may drop courses without administrative approval through the "official last day to drop classes without receiving a grade" via MyView, or in person. After the "official last day to drop classes without receiving a grade" students may drop classes (with appropriate signatures) in the Registrar's Office, the Advising Office, or the Dean's Office.

Students dropping a class can check the Fee Reassessment Chart to determine any change in tuition.

Section Changes

After the 'official last day to enroll" signatures of both the instructor of the section being added, and the instructor of the section being dropped are required.  Please note: If changing sections or swapping classes after the 100% fee reassessment date, students will be assessed fees for the class they are exiting.  To view the Fee Reassessment Chart, view from the link above or visit the UMSL Cashiers website.

Withdrawal from the University

After classes begin, and during the first four weeks, students may withdraw from the university by dropping their courses thru MyView>Self-Service.  Before the student can drop their last course, they will be directed to complete a withdrawal survey.  Once the survey is verified by the Registrar’s Office, the student will be dropped from their last course using the date the survey was completed.  During the first four weeks of a regular semester students may withdraw from the university without receiving grades.

After this period, grades of F or "Excused" are issued, based on whether the student is passing or failing. The student will need to complete the Late Drop form for each course they are enrolled in.  Students must also complete the withdrawal survey by selecting the link below. 

The withdrawal survey link is https://cf.umsl.edu/webapps/ITS/withdrawal_surey/login.cfm.   Students will receive a withdrawal notification e-mail to confirm receipt of your intent to withdrawal.
