After the mid-semester deadline, students may be eligible to drop using the One-Time-Exception (OTE). The OTE may be invoked only once during the student’s entire undergraduate college career regardless of the college the student was enrolled at the time the exception was allowed.
A student must request the OTE from the Dean’s Office (GEB 2.200) by the last class day. Forms must be returned to the Dean’s Office within three business days or before the first day of final exams (whichever comes first).
Students who have already used their OTE will not be allowed to drop unless there are serious, non-academic circumstances that occurred after the deadline. In this instance, students are encouraged to meet with a Dean’s Office advisor as soon as possible to review options.
Students are no longer required to speak with faculty before dropping, but it is still encouraged.
The One-Time-Exception may also be used to withdraw from the University.
