Should I Drop This Course or Not?  

The deadline to drop courses without academic penalty and have them removed from your transcript is Monday, November 22nd, 2021

One-on-one info sessions available with Academic Advising, Financial Aid, International Student Centre and AccessAbility Services

Support for making this decision is available

  • Do you need to balance your well-being and the right course load?
  • Is one course taking up all your time, to the detriment of your other courses?
  • Are you falling behind with the material being covered in a course?
  • Is it mathematically possible for you to pass your course given your grades up until this point, and the weight associated with them?
  • Will staying in the course put you at risk of probation or suspension?
  • Do you need to decide which course to drop?
  • Are you concerned about the financial impact if you drop (e.g. OSAP, Scholarships)?
