    Week 1: During week 1 of the quarter, you can add/drop as needed via your MyDU. It is best to make changes during week 1, which is within the 100% tuition refund period. Rather than wait, be refunded less tuition, and have to fill out paperwork. See the following.

    Adding an academic course beginning Week 2: Beginning the second week of the quarter, you will need to complete an add/drop form if you want to add an academic class. The instructor must sign this form. Please do not send the form to the DU registrar. Email it to your GSSW Registrar, GSSWregistrar@du.edu

  • Directions to add or drop Field Internship classes

    Week 1: During week 1 of the quarter, you can add/drop as needed via your MyDU. If you registered for the wrong section(s) of field courses, please drop the wrong section then add the correct section. It is best to make changes during week 1 rather than wait and have to fill out paperwork. See the following.

    Week 2 and beyond: Beginning the second week of the quarter, you will need to complete an add/drop form if you failed to register for field courses or if you need to correct incorrect field registration. The add/drop form must be signed by your liaison for the section you need to add. You must enter the correct course information for the sections you need to add and/or drop. You can find course information on your Registration Toolkit. Look at your course schedules.

    The Add/Drop form can be found here. Please do not send the form to the DU registrar. Email it to your GSSW Registrar, GSSWregistrar@du.edu and copy your liaison.

  • Q: How do I drop/withdraw from a class via MyDU? 

    A: You can drop/withdraw from courses via your MyDU without instructor approval through the sixth week of a traditional ten week term.

    To drop/withdraw a course please log into your MyDU account. Click on Register for Classes, sign in, and select the current term. Your courses for the term are listed at the bottom of the page. In the action column you select “Web Drop/Delete,” click the submit button, and you have successfully dropped/withdrawn the class.

    Please note, if you are trying to drop/withdraw from ALL your courses, you must complete the official withdrawal process. Please review see next question

    Q: How do I drop/withdraw from ALL my courses?

    A: You cannot drop all your classes (i.e. drop to zero credit hours) via web registration. Dropping all classes constitutes withdrawing from school. If you intend to withdraw from school, you must follow official withdrawal procedures, Withdrawal Information Packet. You will have the option to take a Leave of Absence as part of the Withdrawal process.
