The Q-drop deadline for undergraduates is Tuesday, November 5th. If you’re thinking about dropping a class, don’t forget about the potential impact on your immigration status. All F-1 and J-1 international students must be enrolled for a full-time course load. Undergraduates must be enrolled for 12 credit hours and graduate students for 9 hours. Only under special situations can a student be allowed to drop to less than full-time. If you believe that you might qualify, then schedule an appointment to see an international student advisor to discuss your case. You will need the permission of an international student advisor before you drop the class.
If you find yourself struggling with a class, do not delay in asking for help. Consider speaking to your professors, teaching assistants, or tutors. Information about tutoring and study strategies can be found on the Sanger Learning Center website.
