Dropping Last Class
Before and during the add/drop period of the fall and spring semesters, students cannot drop their last course via the web*. Students dropping their last class are essentially withdrawing from PSU and must contact the academic student advocate to finalize their withdrawal. A withdrawal survey and a PSU withdrawal form must be completed. The completed withdrawal form should be returned to the academic student advocate, located in Frost House. To access the form and the survey, please visit the Academic Forms section of the Registrar’s Office website (campus.plymouth.edu/registrar) and select Student Info.
Any course dropped during the add/drop period will be removed from the student’s transcript. However, if the student attended a class(es) during the add/drop period, the student’s bill will be recalculated based on the student’s last date of attendance. If the student never attended, the bill will be adjusted to reflect any outstanding charges (i.e. housing, dining, etc).
See the Course Withdrawal section for adjustments made after the add/drop period ends.
Graduate students who are planning on registering for the next part-of-term or semester (fall, spring, summer) are encouraged to discuss options with the academic student advocate.**
*Students who are only in one course, and are seeking to drop one course and add another, are encouraged to use the conditional drop/add option when changing courses to remain enrolled and not be seen as withdrawing from PSU.
**Graduate students may remain unenrolled, but active, for a period of 12 consecutive months.
Plymouth State University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to provide enrollment verifications.
Enrollment Certificates may be obtained (at the earliest) two weeks prior to the start of the fall and spring sessions from the NSC website. Students may access the service by logging into myPlymouth and choosing the Enrollment Verification link in Self Service.
For verifications prior to that, students should submit a copy of their schedule – also obtained via myPlymouth – to the requester.

Submit the entire deferment form to the registrar’s office.

For enrollment verification or certification purposes, the following categories are used for undergraduate students during the fall and spring sessions:
|12.0 credits or more||Full-time|
|6.0 to 11.5 credits||At least half-time|
|Fewer than 6.0 credits||Less than half-time|
For enrollment verification or certification purposes, the following categories are used for graduate students during the fall, spring, and summer sessions:
|6.0 credits or more||Full-time|

A Continuing Education student is one who is not matriculated (not admitted into a degree program). A continuing education student may enroll in PSU credit-bearing courses as long as you have met the eligibility requirements.
The eligibility requirements for enrolling in credit-bearing courses include:
- a high school diploma or equivalent
- demonstrated successful academic performance
- successful completion of all course prerequisites
*The University reserves the right to restrict registration to those who can demonstrate the completion of the above requirements and to withdraw a student who upon request fails to provide proper documentation or who demonstrates unacceptable performance once enrolled.
Student Course Load
Continuing education and part-time students may register for a maximum of 11.5 credit hours during the fall or spring sessions, 6.0 credit hours during the Early Spring session and 9.0 credit hours during the summer session.
Use our course search function for a list of courses offered Fall, Early Spring (January intensive), Spring, and Summer sessions
If you want to take a course from the regular schedule for your own interest or development but not for credit, you may register to audit a course. You will not be required to complete the normal class requirements and you will not receive a grade. An auditor pays one-half of the course tuition plus the mandatory fees per credit. Exceptions are skill, studio and professional courses, for which full tuition is charged.
