NOTE: The Free Drop/Add period for courses that do not adhere to the standard schedule above is calculated by this formula: One-seventh times the number of class days (if a fraction, rounded to the next greater integer). For example, for a one-week (five-day) course, the Free Drop/Add period would be the first day of class. 1/7 x 5 days = 5/7 rounded to 1 day.
After the Free Drop/Add Period
(No tuition rebates)
When you withdraw from a course after the Free
Drop/Add Period, a grade of "W" is posted to your academic record and
tuition is charged and not refundable. All courses added after the Free
Drop/Add period require permission of the Assistant Dean of the student's college (an ACCESS counselor for students not matriculated in a UD degree prorgam).
Use the online webform on your
UDSIS Student Center Page:
- Web Forms (right-hand column)
- Course Permit (Drop/Add)
In addition, a $25 fee is charged for a change of registration at this
Any changes after these dates require the approval of the Assistant Dean of the student's college. Use the web form described above.
The Assistant Dean will permit you to withdraw from courses only for unusual circumstances beyond a student's control and not for reasons of academic performance. The Assistant Dean's approval does not alleviate the financial obligation incurred by a late withdrawal - that full tuition is charged in addition to a $25 fee for late changes of registration.
Students may take up to seven credits during each session. Higher credit loads require the permission of the student's dean, or for students not in a University of Delaware degree program the permission of an ACCESS counselor, (302) 831-8843.
Most Summer courses are regular catalogued ones which are also offered during other semesters. Students should refer to the current catalogs for additional details on course content and prerequisites, if any. The University reserves the right to withdraw any course, to limit enrollment, to change instructors, to shift the location of a class or to change the times listed.
- The deadlines for withdrawing from courses without
academic penalty are:
- First Session, 5-week classes . . . . . . June 23
- First Session, 7-1/2 week classes . . . July 5
- Second Session . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .July 28
Courses numbered "_67" are Experimental Courses. Course descriptions appear in the "Supplemental Course Descriptions" section of the "Courses" topic on this Summer website.
Supervised study is a one-to-one faculty/student collaboration on a special problem, independent study, research, thesis or dissertation. Students interested in supervised study should discuss their proposed project with a faculty sponsor and then document the content according to department policy. The student must also register for the appropriate course, and must fill out the
Web Form named "Independent Study and DLE Agreement".
Courses with "000"' section numbers. You must obtain faculty permission for all "000" section courses before registering. When registering for a section-000 course, the student must also specify the faculty member who has agreed to supervise the student's work, and if it is a variable-credit course, then the number of credits on which they have agreed.
If a course meeting time is not listed, the student will be responsible for contacting the instructor or department to arrange class meeting times and locations.
Students wishing to attend class but not do all the required work or receive credit may register as "auditors".
Tuition and registration are the same for auditor status as for registration for credit.
A change of grade status after the Free Drop/Add period incurs a $25 registration change fee.
Undergraduate students are permitted to take one free "elective" course on a pass/fail basis each semester. Continuing Education students can do so without limitation (except as they may one day want to apply those credits to a degree). The total credits taken for a Pass/Fail grade may not exceed 24 in a baccalaureate degree program. A student registered for a course which is offered pass/fail only may still take another course on a pass/fail basis as a "free elective." Students are encouraged to consult with their advisors in the selection of courses to be taken under this option, as the use of free electives varies from college to college.
A student may not add a course with a pass/fail option beyond the course load permitted for his classification. Changes in the pass/fail grade status will be handled as changes in registration, and a student will be permitted to change pass/fail status only one time in any single course.
A change of grade status after the Free Drop/Add period incurs a $25 registration change fee.
The instructor will determine a regular grade for the student who has selected the pass/fail option. Grades between A and D- will be recorded on the report of grades and on the official transcript as a P. An F will be recorded as an F. A grade of F will count in the cumulative index; a P will not.
