Before dropping individual classes, consult your advisor to determine if-
- Your course load would be reduced below the minimal number of hours required to qualify for financial aid, intercollegiate athletic competition, or international full-time student status;
- The courses to be dropped are required to fulfill academic probationary conditions;
- The courses from which you want to withdraw might be core requisite with other courses you are taking, or pre-requisite to other courses required for the next term.
