Adding or Dropping a Course
If you need to drop a course, you must contact our office before the add/drop date. Failure to attend the scheduled course, or failure to participate in an online course, does not constitute a drop.
For additional information, view the University Policy on Change of Schedule.
Withdrawal from Courses (After Add/Drop Date)
Please be advised that you are financially responsible for withdrawn classes. University Policy requires that all email correspondence must come from your Duquesne email address or the withdrawal will not be processed. The procedure to officially withdraw from a class is as follows:
- Using your Duquesne email address, notify your instructor of your intention to withdraw and request their approval in writing. Your instructor should reply to your email to acknowledge your request. You must have the approval from your instructor in order to process a course withdrawal.
- Forward the entire email exchange directly to your academic advisor. Please note that your advisor must receive your request along with faculty approval prior to the final withdrawal date in order to process your request.
- Your advisor will then process the withdrawal form.
***Please be advised that you are financially responsible for the class/classes if you withdraw.
