Take advantage of the free add/drop period at the start of every term to create a schedule that works for you.

During the two-week add/drop period, you can change your course selections without a fee. Take advantage of the opportunity to better understand the direction and demands of your courses and settle on a schedule that you are excited about. That said, it can be advantageous to finalize your schedule by the end of the first week of classes, as it may become increasingly challenging to catch up with a new class that you've added close to the end of the add/drop period.

After the end of the add/drop period, you can drop courses for a $45 fee up until the end of the ninth week of the semester. You may not add courses after the end of the add/drop period. 

P/D/F Option

The P/D/F (pass/D/fail) option is available to encourage experimentation in a subject that is new to you and to offer some breathing room as you manage a demanding course load. You may not P/D/F courses that you intend to use as a prerequisite or departmental for an intended major.
