What is...

Swap: a function for single term courses that allows you to exchange a course that you are currently enrolled in with one that is in your shopping cart – this helps with the possibility of losing your spot if you need to drop one before adding the other.

Drop: a function that allows you to drop most courses prior to academic deadline dates – you should be aware that dropping courses may affect your degree requirements, scholarships and/or loans. There is no financial penalty for dropping courses up until the first financial deadline date which is September 25th.

Edit: a function for single term courses, allowing you to change the lab/tutorial/seminar section associated with the course without changing the lecture section.
