An email from the University Registrar was sent to students on Monday, reminding them that Wednesday is the last day to drop all except one class with a grade of “W” for the full, spring 2017 term.

“All students are strongly encouraged to contact their academic advisor prior to dropping a class,” the email said. “A change to your schedule can result in delayed graduation.”

Beyond a delayed graduation, the email warned students that dropping below full-time status could impact their insurance, financial aid, and/or scholarships. Full-time status for an undergraduate student is 12 credit hours, 10 credit hours for law students, and nine credit hours for graduate students.

To drop a class, students can log into their myBama account, go to the Student page, and select the “Add/Drop Classes” icon, the email said. For a student to drop their last class and completely withdraw from the term, they can select the “Initiate Withdrawal from Term” icon.

“By dropping a class through myBama, you assume full responsibility for that action,” the email said.

For other deadline reminders, the email encouraged students to follow the registrar on Twitter at @UofARegistrar.
