what happens if we drop a course after september 20? does this apply to winter courses as well? or can we drop them once the winter session comes around?
alright, so here are the important dates around dropping courses:
september 20th: the day the waitlist drops for F and Y courses. from the 20th to the 27th, there will be a free-for-all where anyone (with the appropriate prerequisites) can sign up for courses if there is space available.
september 27th: the last day to make changes to F and Y courses – that means that this is the last day you can enrol in courses. it is also the last day you can drop a course and expect a full 100% refund, if you’re on per course fees.
november 8th: the last day to drop courses from your academic record and GPA. after this date, the mark will be recorded, or, if you drop the course, it will be noted ‘LWD’ for ‘late withdraw.’
january 24th: the last day to add or change S courses.
february 15th: the last day to drop Y courses from your academic record and GPA.
march 13th: the last day to drop S courses from your academic record and GPA.
hope that slew of dates clears up your confusion, friend. and in future, don’t be afraid to Google ‘sessional dates uoft’ and click on the first or second week – it’s not as tricky as you might think.
