Dropping Courses through MyUI

Although you may drop semester-length courses on MyUI before the sixth day day of the fall or spring semesters (first day of summer or winter sessions), it is a good idea to check with your advisor before doing this. Our Common Questions about Dropping & Withdrawing is also a great resource.

  1. Sign in to MyUI with your hawkid, and navigate to the COURSES/REGISTRATION section.

Dropping Courses: Off-Cycle

Courses that do not meet for the entire semester are called off-cycle courses. The deadlines to add these courses are different from those for semester-length courses. You can easily identify off-cycle courses in MyUI by the 'off-cycle' designation and the presence of course dates in MyUI.

You can drop off-cycle courses on MyUI until the course begins. If the course has already started, you should check the course deadlines calendar to find the deadline to drop the course.
