Answer:

See the Academic Calendar under Academics on the TMU website for drop/add dates and last day to withdraw from a course without academic penalty. During the published drop/add period, discuss your course changes with your advisor and then enter them in Self Service for advisor approval. After the drop/add period, courses may not be added but may be withdrawn from until the published last day to withdraw without academic penalty. A course drop form should be
obtained from the Registrar’s Office. Upon submission of a completed form, the student will be assigned a grade of “W” for the withdrawn course. (TMU ONLINE students may email course withdrawal requests to registrar@truett.edu)

Students who decide not to attend TMU after receiving a course schedule must notify the registrar’s office (registrar@truett.edu) of intent to withdraw prior to the first day of class to avoid financial and academic penalty.
