Add/Drop/Withdraw

Add a Course

Using the student registration system in myUVU, students may add courses to their schedule without instructor permission if done before the end of the waitlist period (as listed on the Registration Dates and Deadlines). The waitlist period generally ends after the first week of classes for full semester classes, and after only a few days for block classes.  After that time, registration is considered late.

Drop a Course

Using the student registration system, students may drop courses from their schedule, providing they are not dropping all of their courses, according to the published dates and deadlines.
Registration Dates and Deadlines

NOTE: Dropping a course reverses all associated tuition and fees, and removes the course from the transcript. Dropping is not the same as withdrawing.

Withdraw from a Course

Using the student registration system, students may withdraw from courses, providing they are not withdrawing from all of their courses, according to the published dates and deadlines. See below for information on withdrawing past the published deadline.
Registration Dates and Deadlines

NOTE: Withdrawing from a course does not reverse the associated tuition and fees. A 'W' grade will be published to the transcript and is permanent.

Withdrawal Exceptions (Late Withdrawal)

After the published "last day to withdraw" and before the last day of the semester, withdrawing requires a petition called the Withdrawal Exception. Follow this process:

  1. Obtain the Withdrawal Exception form from our forms page or from the Registrar's Office in BA 113.
  2. Complete the form and attach all supporting documentation.
  3. Return the completed form and documentation to the Registrar's Office in BA 113 or via email at registrationrecords@uvu.edu

The Registrar's Office will review the form and documentation, consult with the appropriate department chair(s), and inform you of a decision. More details and instructions are found on the form.

For questions, please contact us at registrationrecords@uvu.edu or 801-863-8493.
