IMPORTANT INFO: Adding and Dropping Courses

REGISTRATION: Students are responsible for registering themselves through Web registration. Visit Student Center at my.ohio.edu to register.

ADDING A COURSE AFTER LAST DAY: If you want to add a general education course after the last day to register, you must gain permission from the instructor. Although the School of Nursing may be able to provide assistance with the course add process, only the instructor can grant permission for a student to add the class.

DROPPING A COURSE: If you are enrolled in more than one course and need to drop a course, you may do so by using the online registration process. To drop courses after the first day of the semester, please complete a course drop request here.

DROPPING ALL COURSES: If you need to drop ALL courses for which you are registered, University policy considers this a "full withdrawal" and you cannot complete a full withdrawal through Web registration. To initiate a full withdrawal, you must contact the student services office in the College of Health Sciences and Professions (the college in which the nursing program resides). For more information, please complete a withdrawal request here.

REMEMBER, if you are only registered for one class and you wish to drop that class, it is considered a full withdrawal.

Refund Policy

  • A student must drop a course prior to the first day it meets to receive a 100% credit or refund.
  • Dropping a course on the first day will result in a 80% refund.
  • If the student officially withdraws from the university (drops all classes) after the Friday of the second week of the semester, he or she is not eligible for a refund. Students in five-week sessions who withdraw after the Friday of the first week of a session (after Thursday of the first week for students in NRSE courses) are not eligible for a refund. Check the course offerings to confirm add and drop dates for your courses.
