If you decide to drop a class, it is your responsibility to do so within the published deadlines. You drop courses through RAMSS. You should always make sure that you have successfully dropped the course in question by checking your RAMSS schedule to see if the course has been removed. If you fail to drop a course successfully, you will receive an “F” or “FNA”. If you are on a probationary contract, you may need to get the permission of your program or department to drop a course (you will need to check this with your department).
Deadlines for dropping courses indicate if you a) are eligible for a full or partial refund and/or b) can drop the course in good academic standing (i.e. the dropped course will not show on your transcript) but you will not receive a refund of any of your tuition fees.
