Course Changes/Adds and Drops
You may add "standard" courses by using online registration until the last day to add courses for each term.
After the last day to add courses a request to add a course must be submitted on an Undergraduate Course Change Form to Undergraduate Records; approval is not automatic.
After the Academic Drop Deadline, to drop a course a Request for Academic Concession (RAC) form must be submitted to Undergraduate Records; approval is not automatic. A failing grade will be assigned to any course that is not formally dropped by the date specified and a standing of Required to Withdraw will be assigned if the sessional GPA falls below the minimum.
You may drop "standard" or "nonstandard" courses using online registration without penalty of failure until the academic drop dates.
After the academic drop date (last day to withdraw from courses without penalty of failure), a Request for Academic Concession (RAC) must be submitted. RACs are available online at the following link: https://registrar.uvic.ca/undergrad/records/forms/forms.html or from Undergraduate Admissions and Records, University Centre. To drop a graduate course, contact Graduate Records in writing.
NOTE: You are not withdrawn from the session if you fail to attend classes or cancel your cheque. If you fail to follow the proper procedure (see withdrawal from University) you will be billed for the full amount due, plus a penalty fee, and a grade of "N" will be entered on your transcript.
NOTE: If a course with a nonstandard date is not shown below the deadlines may be calculated as shown below.
Courses with Non-Standard Dates and Deadlines
Fee reduction and drop deadlines are based upon a percentage of the duration of a course. The table below is used in calculating the refund dates for non-standard date courses as well as for Academic Drop Deadlines. The duration of a course is end date minus start date plus 1 (i.e. the first day counts as 1).
All tuition fee reductions are subject to retention of the acceptance deposit (new students) please see student tuition and fee assessment.
Sample calculation of deadline dates (for illustrative purposes only):
SOCI 123 A01 : 25Oct to 30Oct
- Duration is 6 days (30Oct – 25Oct = 5 + 1 = 6). The first day counts as 1
- 100% Fee Reduction Date is 25Oct (0.15*6 = .9 rounds to 1). This first day counts as 1. The deadline is the start date 25Oct
- 50% Fee Reduction Date is 26Oct (0.38*6= 2.28 rounds to 2). The deadline is 25Oct + 2 = 26Oct. The first day counts as 1
- Academic Drop Deadline is 28Oct12 (0.66*6= 3.96 rounds to 4). The deadline is 25Oct + 4 = 28Oct. The first day counts as 1
