Whether you want to drop or withdraw from a class, there are important steps to take and timelines to consider. Dropping and withdrawing may impact your grade, refund, and financial aid.
Drop a Class
You can drop one or more classes during the designated add/drop period. Dropped classes do not appear on your transcript.
Withdraw from a Class
You can withdraw from one or more courses during the designated withdrawal period. A grade of WX will appear on your transcript if you withdraw from a class.
How to Drop or Withdraw
The most common way to drop or withdraw from a course is online. Students may drop courses through the Manage Classes tile in their Student Center until online registration closes. After registration closes, to drop or withdraw from a course, complete the Course Drop and Course Withdrawal Request Form located under Registration in My.IllinoisState.edu. If the form is closed, please email Registrar@IllinoisState.edu for assistance.
Stop by 107 Moulton Hall Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Bring a photo ID.
If circumstances make it impossible for you to follow the usual withdrawal procedures, or you need to withdrawal after the deadline, please submit the Request for Change form and a statement that explains your situation with appropriate documentation. Instructions for the Request for Change form
