13 | P a g e Communication Studies 2017 - 2018 There are academic and financial deadlines for adding and dropping courses. For the most part, the dates are different. Be sure to read the information carefully so that you understand the difference between the sessional dates and the Refund Table. Please visit: https://registrar.yorku.ca/enrol/dates/fw17 Students may drop a course before the drop date and the course will be removed from the transcript. Please visit: https://registrar.yorku.ca/enrol/dates/fw17 Students may drop a course after the drop date using the registration and enrolment system after the drop deadline until the last day of class for the term associated with the course. When you withdraw from a course, the course remains on your transcript without a grade and is notated as "W".

This policy gives an option to students who are struggling in a course and/or who have become overwhelmed by their circumstances: it lets students minimize the impact on their academic standing, reduce their course load and focus on successfully completing their other courses. The Withdrawn from Course Policy is also relevant to the resolution of Academic Petitions for a late withdrawal filed after the last day of classes on the grounds of hardship.
