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.
