Drop Policy after Refund Period and other Registration Changes

Registration changes must be requested in writing. The instructor and our office ( must be notified of the request. Discuss all requested registration adjustments with your instructor, your department’s Virginia Engineering Online advisor, and administrative support. If a student needs to drop their enrollment to zero after registering, this will need to be completed administratively. Reach out to Jennifer Mauller for assistance.

Changes from Grade to Audit are allowable with instructor approval. Courses may be dropped (they will not appear on one’s transcript) if registration is cancelled by the drop deadline. After the drop deadline, one may withdraw from a course, with instructor permission, and a “W” will appear on the transcript to reflect the registration change.
