Simultaneous drop/adds will be possible without incurring a "W" for the dropped course until the Add/Change deadline. However, these transactions may not be done by students using self service WISER, but must be done by staff. Click here for more details.
  2. No refunds will be given after the 50% refund deadline. Click here for refund policy and procedures.
