Upperclass and transfer students: Nov. 11 is the deadline for class withdrawals and P/NP

The last day for upperclass and transfer students to withdraw from a class or select the Pass/No Pass option is Friday, Nov. 11. Students can withdraw from a class through the Student Information System (SIS) if they are in good academic standing and will not fall below 12 hours.


To withdraw from a class in SIS, go to the “other academic” drop-down box from your student page and select “Enrollment: drop.” This is the same process for drop/add, but you will receive a message reminding you that you will receive a “W” grade.

Students may continue to withdraw from classes in SIS until 11:59 p.m. if they qualify for using the online process, but staff will not be available in the Registrar’s Office or the Office of Undergraduate Studies, so students may be stuck if they wait until after 5 p.m.

Students who are not in good standing, will fall below 12 hours if they withdraw from a course, or want to talk to someone in the Office of Undergraduate Studies before withdrawing from a class, can stop by Sears Building, Room 357.

A schedule of dean’s walk-in hours is available at Students can also call 216.368.2928 to make an appointment.


This year students will complete the Pass/No Pass ballot through SIS. To select P/NP, go to the “other academic” drop-down box from your student page and select “Pass/No Pass Request.” For more information on the new process, visit

Students may use P/NP for only one class other than those regularly graded P/NP, but must remain enrolled in at least three semester hours for an evaluative grade. If it’s a course required for a student’s major, minor or SAGES/breadth requirement, the student can use the P/NP option, but the class will not count toward fulfilling the requirement, and he/she will need to take that class again for an evaluative grade or another applicable class to fulfill the requirement.

Students majoring in any Weatherhead School of Management major may not use the P/NP option for any Weatherhead School of Management courses (ACCT, BAFI, BLAW, ENTP, LHRP, MGMT, MIDS, MKMR, OPMT, ORBH, OPRE, PLCY), required or elective.

The Pass/No Pass option is not available to undergraduate degree candidates enrolled at the graduate or professional levels through the IGS program or Senior Year in Professional Studies or those participating in the Pre-College Scholars Program.
