Adding & Dropping Classes/Withdrawals
Before the semester begins, you may add classes to your schedule on my.BoiseState if there is space available in the class. You may continue to add classes after the first day of classroom instruction, up until the deadline appropriate to the session. However, after the fifth day of the semester's regular session you must obtain the instructor's approval to add the class. Instructors may refuse to grant permission if the class is full (see the Academic Calendar for the exact deadline). They may also refuse permission if your late entry would prevent you from benefitting fully from the class or would prevent other students in the class from doing so. (If you are registering for or adding an independent study, internship, or credit for prior learning, you may do so through the end of the sixth week of the semester.) For more information about adding classes, call the Registrar's Office at (208) 426-4249.
You may drop regular session classes, on my.BoiseState, from your schedule through the sixth week of the semester. (See the Academic Calendar Deadlines by Session table for the exact deadline.) If you drop a regular session class before the 10th day of the semester, the class will not appear on your transcript. However, if you drop a class after the 10th day, your transcript will show a grade of W (for withdrawal) for that class. Grades of W will not be used in GPA calculation. Short courses, five week, and eight week block courses have different deadline dates. (See the Academic Calendar Deadlines by Session table for the exact deadline.) For more information about dropping classes, call the Registrar's Office at (208) 426-4249.
If you wish to leave the University in GOOD STANDING (drop all courses) you must drop all your classes on my.BoiseState. See the Academic Calendar Deadlines by Session table for specific deadlines for the various sessions. If the complete withdrawal for regular session is made after the 10th day of classes and you have not paid your fees, you are still responsible for the entire amount of fees incurred plus a $40.00 administrative processing fee.
If you do not cancel your registration or completely withdraw by the appropriate deadline for the session, you will be awarded a final grade of F. Complete withdrawal after the published deadline will only be granted by special appeal and because of extraordinary circumstances. See the Registrar's Office, Administration Building, Room 110, or call (208) 426-4249 for more information. For information on refunds of tuition and fees following a complete withdrawal, see Chapter 6 - Tuition and Fees.
