Deadline for undergraduate students to drop course without financial penalty extended to March 5.

In recognition of the ongoing impacts of the pandemic and remote learning, the winter term course drop date without financial penalty for undergraduate students is being extended to March 5.

This provides undergraduate students more time and flexibility to settle into the term and make any adjustments to their winter term course load, as needed.  

Prior to this extension, undergraduate students dropping a winter course would have avoided a financial penalty up until 22 January, and would have received a partial financial credit for courses dropped between 23 January and 5 March.

Undergraduate students are encouraged to speak with an academic advisor in their faculty/school office before making the decision to drop a winter term 2021 course through SOLUS. 

Undergraduate students who are receiving government student financial assistance (e.g. OSAP or equivalent in other provincial/territorial jurisdictions) are encouraged to consult with a Student Awards advisor before dropping a course, as any change in academic registration and/or assessed tuition may impact this funding.

Undergraduate students who dropped a winter term 2021 course after the previous deadline of January 22 will have their account credited.
