Last day to Resign from 15-week Standard Session

The last day to resign from a 15-week Standard Session Course is Friday, April 19, 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 selected your GLOBAL and THEMATIC Pathway courses?

Graphic asking if students have selected their UBC Global and Thematic courses

UB students should select their UB Pathway courses by the end of their first semester at UB.  If you do not know how to choose your pathway courses, you can view a tutorial on the Pathfinder Tool.  Many students also find it helpful to schedule a meeting with an academic advisor to discuss the process of selecting pathway courses.

Once a student has selected their pathway courses, they will send them to HUB.

In HUB, students are able to the Plan tool to assign pathway courses to future semesters.

Another HUB tool that students use to track their progress in completing all of the UBC areas is the Academic Requirements report.
