Important Information: Adding and dropping courses - Refund policy

Registration: Students are responsible for using the online course registration in the My OHIO Student Center to register.

Adding a Course After the Last Day: In general, students may add classes to their official schedules through the Friday of the first week of a semester or session. Some departments or individual instructors may require permission or even close registration altogether after the semester or session begins. The last day to add for a session is Friday of the first week. The last day to add for a semester is Friday of the second week; however, permission is required to add after the Friday of the first week of a semester.

Dropping or Withdrawing From One or More (But Not All) Courses: If you are enrolled in more than one course and need to drop a course, you may do so by using the online registration process. Visit the My OHIO Student Center to adjust your schedule.

Students may drop classes from their schedules without permission or academic or financial penalty through Friday of the second week of the semester (Friday of the first week of a session). Check the course offerings to see the last day to drop your courses.

Students may withdraw from one or more but not all classes from the Saturday of the second week of the semester (Saturday of the first week of a session) through the Friday of the tenth week of the semester (last instructional day of the fifth week of a session) without permission. However, the classes remain on the students' academic records with grades of WP (withdrawn passing) or WF (withdrawn failing), and they continue to be used in the calculation of tuition and fees. WP or WF grades do not affect the student's grade point average.

Withdrawal From All Courses: Online degree completion students and online RN to BSN students may withdraw using the Online Withdrawal Form. Please note: Your current campus must be ECAM (eCampus) to use the online form. You can see your current assigned campus in the My OHIO Student Center or on your DARS report. Your campus will change based on your enrollment for a term. eCampus students who are taking the majority of their classes through the Athens Campus or a regional campus will have their campus reassigned to Athens or the regional campus. If your current campus is not ECAM, you will be directed to the contact information at http://www.ohio.edu/registrar/withdraw-contact.cfm to withdraw from all your courses.

If you have any questions, email ecampus@ohio.edu or call 740.593.2910. Withdrawal is not permitted on or after the last day of classes.
