3/10/21: Last Day of Drop/Add for Express II Courses

March 22, 2021 is the last day for students to withdraw with a status indicator of “W” from full semester classes. A “W” is not a grade. A “W” indicates that a course was started but not completed.  Holds placed by the Treasurer’s Office will prohibit students from being able to withdraw in Banner Self-Service. Students should settle the hold with the Treasurer to be able to withdraw online.  Don’t wait until the last minute!
