You are able to add and drop classes and change your grading options using CalCentral through the end of the fifth week of instruction. Technical courses must be taken for a letter grade. However, if you are taking a technical course that cannot fulfill any requirements for your major, you may change the grading option to P/NP for that course by the end of the fifth week of instruction. After the fifth week of instruction, grading option can only be changed for H/SS courses. You must meet with your Engineering Student Services (ESS) Adviser in 230 Bechtel Engineering Center to change your grading option for H/SS courses during weeks 6-10.
Courses may be dropped by the stated fifth week deadline provided that you will still be enrolled in at least 12 units and in at least two letter graded technical courses required for your major. Changes to the grading option must be made by the stated deadlines: end of the fifth week for technical courses that cannot be used to satisfy any requirements for your major, and end of the tenth week for H/SS courses.
Adds, drops and changes of grading options are not permitted past the deadlines stated above in Adding or Dropping Courses. However, if you are experiencing academic or personal difficulties or other unexpected circumstances, you are encouraged to meet with your ESS Adviser to discuss options.
Note: Courses for which academic dishonesty has been verified by established campus procedures cannot be dropped from the record. Grades for such courses will be reinstated to the record when dishonesty is verified.
