Orange barAre you considering dropping or withdrawing from a course?

Students can withdraw from or drop a course through the myUVM portal. Action taken by the student is how we determine when a drop or withdraw becomes effective.

Please note that students who simply stop attending classes without dropping or withdrawing through their myUVM portal will remain enrolled in the course and will likely receive a failing grade on their transcript.
