Dropping Courses

When students are dropping courses it is important that they double check to confirm that the course has been removed from their record. To do this, students can go back to the "Student Menu" and click on "Class Schedule". The changes that were made should appear there. If they don't, try exiting WebAdvisor and re-entering, and then click on "Class Schedule" again to determine if the course has been removed.

If a student is taking a course through distance education, they should check that the course has been deleted in the course list since distance education courses do not show up on the schedule grid.

Students should note that Courselink is only updated periodically, and if a course is still listed on Courselink, it does not mean you are still enrolled.

Voluntary Withdrawl 

If you decide to not attend a semester, you can do so. This is called Voluntary Withdrawl. See Section VIII of the Undergraduate Calendar and Section VIII of the Diploma Calendar for more information on Voluntary Withdrawl. It is recommended that students meet with their Program Counsellor to discuss withdrawing from all classes (before they do so), to explore their options and to discuss processes involved. You are allowed to not register for up to five semesters but remain in your current program. University Regulations outline the details of this situation. After such time, you will be required to apply for Readmission. See Section VIII of the Undergraduate Calendar and Section VIII of the Diploma Calendar for more information on Readmission.
