SCHEDULE ADJUSTMENT PERIOD (JANUARY 2 - 7)
The Schedule Adjustment Period is the time frame at the beginning of the session when you can use your myUMBC account to SWAP, ADD, or DROP a course.
Swap a Course(s)
During the schedule adjustment period you may use the SWAP option to simultaneously add and drop a class (with the same number of credits) with no financial penalty. The class you wish to remove will not be dropped until you are successfully enrolled in the added course.
Add a Course(s)
During the schedule adjustment period, check with the instructor before adding a course to ensure missed course work can be completed. Courses added during the Schedule Adjustment Period will be assessed a non-refundable $20 late registration fee.
Drop a Course(s)
Courses dropped during the Schedule Adjustment Period will receive a pro-rated refund based on the date the course is dropped. If a course is dropped after the Schedule Adjustment Period, the transcript will reflect a "W" for the course.
After the Schedule Adjustment Period (January 8 - 17)
Once the Schedule Adjustment Period ends, you can no longer use myUMBC to make schedule adjustments, except to drop a course (a grade of "W" will appear on your transcript.)
Between January 8-17 the grade method for a course can be changed from "regular" to "pass/fail" by submitting an myUMBC Help Ticket to the Registrar's Office.
Withdrawing from Winter Session 2014
After January 17, the only way to drop a course is to withdraw from the session (i.e., drop all courses in the session). Submit an myUMBC Help Ticket to the Registrar's Office requesting a "semester withdraw". A notation of "Session Withdrawal" will appear on your transcript. The last day for a semester withdrawal from Winter Session 2014 is Thursday, January 23.
