Students who do not complete the Class Start Assignment for all undergraduate and graduate business courses before the Drop/Add date will be dropped by the faculty. Drop/Add dates are typically one week for the 14-week courses and 3 days in the 7-week courses. The official date can be viewed on the Academic Calendar each term.

The Class Start Assignment for each course will be included in the Canvas template, syllabi and any welcome message from the professor for each business course.  These assignments may vary by professor, but will be referred to as “Class Start Assignment” and are all due one day before the last day to drop/add.


This policy does not affect the university’s policy to allow students to drop/add a course within the specified time periods without penalty. Students are able to drop/add courses to their schedule within the following time frames. 

• 3 days after the start of a 7 week course
• 7 days after the start of a 10 or 14 week course
