Posted November 7, 2017 in Did You Know?, HUB Tips, Important Dates

The last day to Resign a 15-week Standard Session course is Friday, November 10, 2017 by 11:59:59 p.m. Last day to resign a 15-week standard session course is Friday, November 10, 2017

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.)
