Important changes to your Official Transcript and Dropped courses

In January 2012, Queen’s Senate passed a motion that a dropped course (DR) will not appear on the transcript if the course was dropped before your program’s drop date deadline.  This is retroactive back to May 1, 2011.

If you have dropped a course since May 1, 2011 and the change was made before the Arts and Science deadline, the drop (DR) will be removed from your transcript.

In the future

Please be proactive when dropping a course and make sure you drop it before your program’s deadline!  You can find out the deadlines by looking at your Faculty/School academic calendar dates here.

If you want to drop a course after the deadline, you need to contact the Student Services office (F200 Mac-Corry Hall). Information about appeals can be found here.
