The drop/add period is defined as the period after the Registrar Office enrolls the students in class and continues through the first two weeks of all full-semester courses. Dates can be found in the Academic Calendar for each academic year. The MMS: DKU program’s drop/add dates differ from the university calendar. During the drop/add period, a student can request to change their schedule without penalty. After the drop/add period ends, students may be permitted to withdraw from a normal course load to an underload. Such a withdrawal is possible only prior to the final four weeks of classes for full-semester courses.
