CUS Academic Calendar 2023-2024


Important Deadlines for CUS Non-Semester-Length Courses

Courses that do not run the entire semester have modified add, drop, and withdrawal deadlines depending on the length of the course.

Courses scheduled up to 7 days

  • Last day to drop without a "W" grade: End of 1st day

  • Last day to withdraw and receive a "W" grade: Day when 75% of course has been completed (i.e., if course meets 5 days, last day for "W" would be the end of the 4th day.*)

Courses scheduled 8 or more days

  • Last day to drop without a "W" grade: End of 3rd day

  • Last day to withdraw and receive a "W" grade: day when 75% of course has been completed (i.e., if course meets 14 days, last day for "W" would be the end of the 11th day.*)

*Additional calculations for other lengths of courses would follow the same pattern of determining when 75% of the course had been completed.

Nursing Courses

Nursing courses follow the CAGS schedule for add, drop, and withdrawal deadlines.**
