Dropping a Course

  • Check the course offerings to confirm course add and drop dates for that particular semester. If you need to drop a course or courses, use the MY OHIO Student Center.

    If you drop ALL your courses on or after the first day of class, University policy considers this a withdrawal. If you are only registered for one class and you wish to drop that class, it is still considered a withdrawal. [See below for information about re-admission].

    To withdraw from the semester, you must notify the Graduate College. The email address is graduate@ohio.edu. Indicate in that e-mail that you are dropping all of your course(s) for that semester, and therefore need to withdraw. [Even if you are registered for only one course, you still need to follow this procedure. If you are registered for more than one course, and drop only one of the courses, you do NOT need to follow this procedure.]

    If you withdraw from a semester and are in good standing, you can enroll in classes the following semester without doing anything extra.

    If you withdraw from a semester and then skip a semester or more before resuming your graduate program, you will have to re-enroll (without a fee). This can be done at https://www.ohio.edu/registrar/upload/Re-Enrollment-Form 1-7-15.pdf.

  • Skipping a Semester

  • If you skip a taking courses in Fall or Spring Semester before resuming your graduate program, you will have to re-enroll (without a fee). This can be done at https://www.ohio.edu/registrar/upload/Re-Enrollment-Form 1-7-15.pdf. This process is not necessary if the semester you skip is the summer semester.
