Add or Drop Courses
Add a Course(s)
During open enrollment before the semester starts, you can add courses to your schedule online in your myAllen portal, or by contacting your advisor. Some courses may require approvals. Enrollment will close approximately one week after the beginning of each 16-week, first 8-week, and second 8-week session. The dates are published on the Academic Dates and Deadlines.
You may not add a course after the date published on the Academic Dates and Deadlines calendar for each session. Max credit hours for each term are:
- Fall and Spring semesters (16-week): 18 credit hours
- 8-week: 9 credit hours
- Intersession: 4 credit hours
To add a course: myAllen >> Enrollment >> Course Registration >> Add/Drop Courses
Drop a Course(s)
During open enrollment before the semester starts, you can drop a course from your schedule online in your myAllen portal. Approval is not required to drop a course.
To drop a course: myAllen >> Enrollment >> Course Registration >> Add/Drop Courses
After enrollment has closed for open enrollment, you will need to contact your advisor to drop a course.
If you have a hold on your account the request to drop should be sent to your advisor; include your name, student ID number, course number/name, and instructor name.
All hours from course drops will count as attempted hours for course repeats, determining eligibility to continue enrollment, to receive financial aid and scholarships and for Residence Hall and student-athlete status.
Courses dropped before or during the 100 percent refund period will not appear on your transcript. Courses dropped after the 100 percent refund period will appear on a transcript with a grade of W.
IMPORTANT: Notifying your instructor that you wish to drop and/or are no longer attending class is not enough to officially drop the course. If you do not officially drop by the date published on the Academic Dates and Deadlines, you will most likely receive a grade of F for the course.
Withdraw From all Courses
To withdraw from classes entirely, you’ll need to contact your advisor and complete the add/drop form.
You won’t be permitted to withdraw from your last class or withdraw from all classes without completing this form. A hold on your account will not prevent you from submitting this request.
Auditing a Course
Some students choose to audit a course. Auditing a course means that you have chosen to enroll in a course without the benefit of earning credit. The course will not count towards a degree or certificate and you will be responsible for all associated tuition and fees.
To request permission to audit a course, you’ll need to contact your advisor or follow the directions for the myAllen portal listed here.
If you are interested in auditing a course, please contact the Advising and Enrollment Office.
