Student Forms

Add/Drop Forms (Change of Schedule) expanding section

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 add classes on their WINGS Student Center through the 5th day of classes without permission, provided that class section is open.
  • Between the 6th and 10th day of the semester, the instructor's permission is required to register, if the course is open. Additional approval may be required if the course is closed or to override prerequisites.
  • After the 10th day, permission from the instructor, department chairperson, and student's dean is required on all adds of full semester classes.

Dropping a Class:

  • Students may drop classes on their WINGS Student Center through the 10th day of classes without permission and without affecting the student's academic record.
  • All withdrawals after the 10th day of classes for a full semester course will be recorded with a “W” on the student’s academic record, and written permission is required from the instructor or the student's advisor. 
  • Any student may withdraw from a class during the first half of a course. No student is permitted to withdraw from a course later than one week after the midterm of a full semester course.
  • 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).
  • The drop date is recorded as of the date the form is officially processed, not the date of the instructor’s signature.
  • Total withdrawals from the university in the fall or spring semesters must be done through the Student Life office, 149 Graff Main Hall. For a summer or winter intersession withdrawal, see the Office of Records and Registration, 117 Graff Main Hall.

Drop/add dates for classes shorter than a full semester are prorated 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.

Off-Campus Evaluation and Permit Form expanding section

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.

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.)
