Course Changes After Classes Begin
It is the obligation of each student to ensure that she or he is properly enrolled in each and every course by January 24.
Dropping and adding courses continues via DukeHub until Jan. 24. Since authorizing signatures of faculty advisors and academic deans are not required, it is incumbent upon the student to ensure that any changes are compatible with BSE degree requirements. The Undergraduate Bulletin and the faculty advisor or Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) should be consulted if there are any questions. After Drop/Add ends on Jan. 24 no course may be added.
For withdrawal from a course between Jan. 24 and March 28, the student should schedule an appointment to meet with your academic dean for the appropriate form that requires an instructor’s signature. A course discontinued without approval will result in a grade of F.
When a student notes an error in his or her course schedule, the student should consult with her or his advising dean. All errors should be corrected by Jan. 31.
