If you realize you want to drop a class after the 12th class day, you’ll need to execute a Q drop before the Q-drop deadline, which typically occurs near the middle of the semester. See the academic calendar for exact dates.
UGS students: You will need to schedule an appointment with your assigned academic advisor to discuss and fill out the drop form.
Students in other colleges/schools at UT Austin: You will need to meet with an advisor in your College/School to fill out the drop form.
You will have a “Q” on your transcript as the grade in that class. Your GPA is not negatively affected by a Q, but you are only allowed six Q drops while you are in college at any public Texas institution.
If by Q dropping the class you will fall below 12 hours, you will be considered a part-time student. This might affect the following.
