Limits on Dropped Courses

An Undergraduate student enrolled at Tarleton State University is permitted a total of 6 dropped courses, including any transfer courses dropped at any other Texas public institution of higher education. Any course dropped before the census day does not count in this total. A student who drops a class receives a grade of Q on their record. A student who withdraws from the university receives a grade of W or WF for each class. W’s and WF’s will not be counted as dropped courses.

After a student has accumulated 6 dropped courses, he or she will not be permitted to drop any class unless unusual circumstances exist, as determined by the Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management or Vice President for Academic Affairs.

Please view the academic calendar for the official census date (last day to drop with no record) for the term in question.
