Last day to Resign a 15-week course is Friday, November 8, 2019

The last day to resign from a 15-week Standard Session Course is Friday, November 8, 2019 by 11:59 p.m. EDT.

Before resigning a course:

  • Student should discuss with course instructor
  • Student should speak with an academic advisor to discuss the pros and cons of resigning a course.
  • Student should consider if h/she will need to register for the course in a future semester. If so, then h/she will want to see if the course is listed among the Course Enrollment Control List.  If it is, then a student may need to repeat during a Summer or Winter Session.

How to Resign a Course

Students electing to Resign from a course will log into their HUB Student Center.

  1. In the HUB Academic section they will select Enroll link.
  2. They will next be asked to select the semester, or session, for which they want to resign a course.
  3. For the selected semester, a student will now see a listing of all of the courses in which they are registered. Next to each course there will be a check box. Select the course to be resigned.
  4. Click the Drop Selected Classes button.
  5. Click the Finish Dropping button.
  6. To confirm that the course has been dropped, go to the HUB Academic section and click the View My Grades link.
  7. Select the appropriate semester/session and find the course. In the Grade Column, you will see that an “R” is listed.  A resigned course does not have a grade point value, and therefore is not used in the calculation of your grade point average (gpa).
  8. If you receive financial aid, a resigned course will be used in the calculation of a student’s Satisfactory Academic Progress.
  9. Before you resign a course, and if you receive financial aid, discuss implications of resigning a course upon your financial aid eligibility.  Go to 1Capen and ask to speak with the next available financial aid advisor.

Have you looked at your Fall Semester Final Exam Schedule?

Final Exam Schedule

Your final exam schedule is available in your HUB Student Center (via MyUB). If you are new to HUB refer to this HUB Student Center Training Guide – Final Exam Schedule

Student Responsibility for Exam Conflicts

Beginning in the fall 2014 term final exam information will be available one week prior to the start of fall classes.

A final exam conflict exists when a student has:

  • Three or more exams scheduled on the same day
  • Two exams occurring at the same time
  • When a student’s exam occurs contemporaneously with his or her commencement ceremony for spring or summer conferral

Students who find themselves with an unavoidable exam conflict should contact the instructors of the courses and explain the conflict in exams. Usually one instructor will be able to schedule an alternate time for the student to take their exam. If students are unable to arrange the re-scheduling of examinations with the faculty, undergraduate students should contact the appropriate dean’s office and graduate students should contact their academic department.

Final Exam Scheduled for More Than One Classroom

If your final exam is assigned to more than one classroom, contact your instructor during the last week of classes to determine where to report for the exam.

Instructors are assigning mid-term grades for Fall 2019 undergraduate classes. They will continue to do so until the tenth week of the semester.

You can view your mid-term grades by going to your HUB Student Center. Click the Grades and Awards tile.

If you have any mid-semester grades of MU, or letter grades less than a C, discuss options with your instructor as soon as possible.

After speaking with your instructor, you may also want to discuss options and or ramifications with an Academic Advisor and or Financial Aid Advisor.
