Should I Drop or Not? Info Sessions

The final day to drop Y courses without academic penalty is Wednesday, July 26th, 2023

  • Do you need to balance your well-being and the right course load?
  • Is a 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 implications of dropping a course (e.g., OSAP, Scholarships)?
