Academics - Add and Drop (Schedule Changes)

The University of Maine allows students to add courses, to change sections within a course or to alter the grading option for a course through the first five class days of each semester.  Courses may be dropped over a much longer period, but students will receive no tuition refund for courses dropped after the tenth day of classes each semester.  Withdrawal from individual courses is reflected on the academic transcript using the same guidelines as withdrawal from the University.

Occasionally the University may cancel a class during the first week because of insufficient enrollment. Courses with numbers from 100 to 299 may be cancelled if fewer than 12 students enroll; those numbered from 300 to 499 may be cancelled if fewer than 8 students enroll (fewer than 12 students for courses offered through the Continuing Education Division).
