    Drop/Add Forms:

    Drop/add forms are available at the Office of Records and Registration, 117 Graff Main Hall. Completed forms may be returned between the hours of 7:45 A.M. and 4:30 P.M.

    Adding a Class:

    • Students may register on-line for a course via the WINGS Student Center through the fifth day of the semester for full semester courses, provided that course/section is open, after which time a signature is required for admission into the course.
    • For additions to schedules between the sixth and tenth day of the semester, the instructor's signature alone is needed if the course is open.
    • After the tenth day, additions to schedules will be made only in extreme cases and will need the approval of the instructor, department chair, and dean.

    Dropping a Class:

    • Students may drop courses via WINGS Student Center through the fifth day of the semester for a full semester course.
    • After the fifth day, students must bring a drop/add form signed by the course instructor or their advisor to 117 Graff Main Hall in order to drop a full semester course. The drop date used is the date the drop/add form is processed in the Records and Registration office, not the date of the instructor's signature.
    • All withdrawals from full semester courses after the first week will be recorded with a "W" on the student's academic record.
    • The last day to drop a full semester class is one week after mid-semester. Drop dates for half-semester courses and shorter courses are pro-rated based on the length of the course. To see the exact drop date for a particular course, locate the small calendar icon next to the course in your schedule through your WINGS Student Center.
    • A student who fails to attend the first two scheduled classes or provide proper notification may be dropped from the course at the discretion of the instructor. However, a student should not assume this will happen. It is still a student’s responsibility to officially drop the course(s).
    • Total withdrawals from the university in the fall or spring semesters must be done through the Student Life office, 149 Graff Main Hall.

    Off-Campus Course Evaluation and Permit Form

    Students often decide to take courses at other institutions during the various breaks throughout the year (such as winter intersession or summer). Prior to taking a course at another institution, complete the Off Campus Course Evaluation and Permit form available in your Dean's office before registering for the course. This will ensure that the course will transfer appropriately to UWL and fulfill intended requirements. Note: Students may NOT REPEAT a course at another institution once it has been taken at UWL. Please contact the Office of the Dean with questions or concerns regarding transfer information. 

    The Admissions Office has listed the types of transfer credit available at UWL.

    More information and the steps for transferring credit can be found in the Academic Advising Center.


    The WINGS Student Center will not allow you to register for courses that are full or require special permission from the instructor, department chair, and/or dean. Permission is obtained on override forms that are available in department offices.  These forms are available via your instructor(s) and/or Dean's office.

    Electronic overrides are available for closed classes and pre-requisites until the fifth day of instruction. (Exceptions apply for Summer and Winter sessions - see your instructor and/or department chair.)
