Dropping a Course

“Dropping a course” means cancelling a registration for a course by the end of the “Drop/Add period” in the first week of a semester. During the Late Registration/Drop/Add period, students can add/register for a course on-line (http://www.oldwestbury.edu) For specific dates for the Late Registration/Drop/Add period, please check the academic calendar.

Simply not attending a course doesn’t mean that you have dropped the course. Also, physical presence in a course doesn’t mean that you are registered in the course, even though your instructor recognizes your presence and allows you to stay in the course. Please confirm your registration in the Student Information System (https://owsis.oldwestbury.edu/pls/prod/twbkwbis.P_WWWLogin).

Here are some things to consider when you think about dropping a course:

  • Should you add another course?
  • Can you find another course to add?

Also consider:

  • impact on your academic progress
  • impact on your financial aid,
  • impact on your health insurance coverage
  • impact on your visa status
  • impact on your eligibility for on-campus housing

If you need help to understand the consequences of dropping a particular class, please contact your advisor.
