Withdrawal may be from either a single course, or from an entire quarter.

Drop a Course in Spring 2021

You can drop a course using R’Web until Friday, April 9.
Between Monday, April 12 and Friday, May 21 at 11:45am, you can submit an Enrollment Adjustment Form at MyForms

*Dropping a course is a PERMANENT decision. If you gain new information and want to add the course again, submit a BCOE online petition to request a late add of a course.  Obtain email support from the instructor prior to submitting the petition.

Drops resulting in part-time status (enrolled in less than 12 units) may have implications beyond academic standing.  Contact Financial Aid, the Veteran’s Resource Center, Housing, the Health Center, or any other entity requiring full status about the implications of a withdrawal.  Send email to alert your advisor that you are waiting for a response before making a final decision. The enrollment adjustment form is not available after the May 21 deadline. 

Withdrawal From a Quarter

Withdrawal from an entire quarter erases all academic effort for a full term. It carries no negative GPA consequences. The act of completing this process will end your matriculation as a UCR student. Withdrawals processed within the first three weeks of a term will remove all enrollment information for the affected term. Withdrawals after the 8th week of the term will result in W grades assigned to all courses. An indication of withdrawal must be made to the Office of Student Academic Affairs on or before the last day of instruction for a current term.

Special Note for Withdrawal and Readmission

Students requesting to withdraw from a quarter and return in the immediate following term must be in Good Academic Standing, and are subject to a Readmission fee. Under these circumstances, the traditional readmission deadlines do not apply.

A student who is withdrawing while on Academic Probation is not eligible for Readmission in the immediate following term.


Go to the Registar website, read the directions there, and submit the form electronically at MyForms.
