  • The last day to withdraw from a full-semester course is October 25. If you decide to withdraw from any full-semester courses at this time, there will be a “W” grade for the class on your transcript. The deadline to add late six-week sprint classes has already passed, so you will not be able to add any more courses this semester. Please do not withdraw from a course if you will be below Enrollment Requirements. If unsure what to do, talk to ISSS advising.
