Drop/Add/Resign Courses

Visit your HUB Student center (via MyUB, UBITName required) to add and drop courses. A course is not “dropped” until you process the request in your HUB Student Center.

Resigning a Course

During the fall and spring semesters, from the 7th day of classes until the end of the 11th week of classes, you may visit your HUB Student Center (via MyUB, UBITName and password required) to resign from one or more of your classes. The result of this action is that an “R” remains on your transcript as a neutral indicator of the action. There may be a 50% – 100% tuition penalty for resigning a course, depending on when you resign the course. See Financial Liability Deadlines.

Please also consider the following before resigning from a class:

  • You must resign by 11:59 pm EST on the last day to resign date for your transaction to be accepted and processed within the deadline.
  • You should speak with your academic and/or financial aid advisor regarding the impact of dropping or resigning a course.
  • If you do not drop or resign from a course, you are obligated to pay the tuition and fees, and you will be graded for the course, even if you did not attend it.
  • When resigning from a course, undergraduate students should determine if the course is impacted. Impacted courses cannot be repeated during the fall or spring semesters. (See Priority Registration for Students Attempting a Course for the First Time.)

Graduating at the end of the semester?

Posted September 21, 2017 in Did You Know?, Important Dates

Apply for Graduation: A Must Do, and Degree Checkout Status

Undergraduate Students: You must apply for graduation in your HUB Student Center (via MyUB).

You will only be able to select the Graduation Terms that are available to apply for, and you will not be able to apply for your degree more than one year in advance. You cannot be in an “Intended” plan and must be officially accepted into a major before you can apply for your degree.

Students who will be receiving two degrees (BA & BS, BFA & BA) and students in a combined degree program must apply for both degrees at the same time.

New Information: Your Degree Conferral Date (the date your degree is awarded) is now in the HUB as a “Graduation Term”; the final term (semester) before your conferral. Please be careful when choosing these dates as they can affect your ability to register and possibly your financial aid eligibility.

Your April To-do List: Fall Course Planning

Posted April 6, 2017 in Did You Know?, HUB Tips, Important Dates

Inforgraphic of things you need to do in your HUB Student Center (Image: Infographic of a student’s HUB Student Center. Double click the image to enlarge the picture)

Your April To-do List: Fall Course Planning

  1. Check you HUB student center on a weekly basis throughout the semester to ensure that there are no HOLDs listed.  Most HOLDS will prevent you from adding/dropping/resigning from courses.  One exception to this is the Finish in Four Hold, this will not restrict your registration activity.
  2. Schedule a meeting with an academic advisor to discuss current semester and future plans. You can find contact information for your assigned Advising Office by looking at the Advisor box in HUB. You can also find advising office information by referring to the Undergraduate Advising Directory. To get a sense of what will be covered in a typical advising meeting refer to the Time to Start Thinking about Your Fall Semester Classes post.
  3. To maximize your chance of getting the courses you want, begin your registration once your Enrollment Appointment starts by looking at the HUB Enrollment Date box.  You should see your Fall Enrollment Date listed in HUB sometime around the third or fourth week of March.
  4. The Fall 2017 Class Schedule should also be available sometime around the third or fourth week of March.  You will find the HUB Schedule Builder to be a very easy to use and helpful tool with regard to creating ideal schedules.  Once you have made an ideal schedule you can export it to your HUB Enrollment Shopping Cart. The day before your Enrollment Date you will want to take a look at the Status Column in your Shopping Cart to ensure that your selections are still Open.
  5. Instructors will soon start to assign Mid-term (sometimes also referred to as Mid-semester) Grades.  You should click the Mid-Term Grades tab on  your HUB My Grades page weekly through to view your mid-term grades.  A designation of MS (Mid-semester Satisfactory) or letter grade of C or higher indicates that you are not thus far in academic difficulty.  However a designation of MU (Mid-semester Unsatisfactory) or  letter grade less than a C means that you should discuss your standing in the class and options with the instructor.  In some cases you may be told that you cannot pass the course, and therefore should Resign from the class.  The last day to Resign from a 15-week Spring 2017 class is Friday, March 21, 2017.  Before you resign from a course you should discuss ramifications with an academic advisor, and a financial aid advisor (if you receive financial aid).
