Policies Governing Dropping a Course

Students may drop a class until the end of the sixth week of the semester by using Path@Penn and should consult the Academic Calendar for the official Drop deadline for each semester. Failure to attend a course does not automatically result in being dropped from the course. Courses that are dropped will no longer appear on a student’s transcript.

Students considering dropping a course should speak with their pre-major advisor or an advisor in the College Office before taking any action and should be aware of the risks of being under-enrolled.
