For add/drop and tuition refund deadlines: Based on AU policy, deadlines for adding and dropping courses and for tuition refunds (other than for full withdrawal from the term) will vary based on the actual instructional period of each course. General guidelines are as follows:

  • ADD: 0 – 20% of instructional period
  • DROP (no transcript notation, 100% tuition refund): 0‐20% of instructional period
  • WITHDRAW (transcript notation of W, 0 tuition refund, counts as attempted credit in calculation of SAP): 21% ‐ 60% of instructional period.
  • WITHDRAW‐NO CREDIT (transcript notation of WNC, 0 tuition refund, counts as attempted credit in calculation of SAP): 61% ‐ end of instructional period.
  • For 10 week classes, the Add/Drop deadline is typically Monday of week 3 of the term.
  • Non-standard meeting schedules are subject to different dates.
  • Actual dates by section appear in section detail in AUView.
