New Registration Deadlines and Drop and Withdrawal Policies are in Effect for Spring 2013

November 16, 2012

As part of University of Maryland University College's commitment to student success, we are implementing new policies regarding course registration, dropping a course and withdrawing from a course for Spring 2013.  

New Registration Deadlines 

Online Courses: Students must register at least five days prior to the start of the online course. Example: An online session starts on Monday, January 14, 2013. A student can register up until Wednesday, January 9, at 11:59 p.m.

Hybrid Courses* (defined as having both online and on-site components): Students must register one day prior to the calendar start date. Example: A hybrid session runs from Monday, January 14, through Sunday, March 10, 2013. A student can register up until Sunday, January 13, at 11:59 p.m.  

On-Site Courses*: Students must register prior to the start of the first class meeting. *All on-site graduate courses are considered to have an online component, regardless of whether they are designated as hybrid. Therefore, all on-site graduate courses follow the deadlines for hybrid courses.  

New Drop and Withdrawal Policies  

Under the new drop and withdrawal policy, you may drop a course within a designated timeframe to receive a refund of the full tuition and any non-application fees, and no record of the course registration will appear on your transcript.

Note: Dropping or withdrawing from a course(s) may impact your financial aid. Review Frequently Asked Questions about dropping and withdrawing to learn more.
