UConn undergraduates may add or drop classes through their Student Admin System account until the last day of the add/drop period listed above for each session. After these dates, you must withdraw in person at any UConn Registrar's Office or e-mail to be withdrawn from the class, but a "W" notation will be added to your transcript to mark the late withdrawal. You may withdraw with a W notation anytime before the last class meeting for a course.  Please note: You are not entitled to a refund for the course once the add/drop period for a given session/course has ended.


1These are the official sessions of the UConn Summer Program 2019. Please note that some classes may run on schedules that do not match the session dates posted here. Most such courses run in Summer Session 3, but a few run elsewhere. Please check your course schedule carefully to be certain of the dates your class is meeting. Please also review your Bursar fee bill for due dates for all summer course-based and other fees.  It is your responsibility to pay fees by the deadlines posted.  

2Alternative Summer Sessions 1 and 2 are longer (6 week) sessions designed for most labs and some other courses that require a longer duration to cover the course content.   Some language and other courses run within the Alternative Sessions but do not match session start/end dates. Please check your course schedule carefully for specific class dates.

Important Note:

  • It is your responsibility to pay summer course and/or other fees (for example housing/dining) by the deadlines listed in your fees bill.  Fees for summer courses post to your account automatically when you register for a course.  Fees will not be removed from your account unless you formally drop the course by the end of the add/drop period for a given session.  These dates are listed above.  Non-attendance in a course will not make you eligible for a refund, as you are fully responsible for withdrawing from a course on time.  Payment for any registration that takes place after the Payment Due date will be due 3 days from the date of registration.
  • Dropping below 6 credits can affect your financial aid award. Contact the Office of Student Financial Aid Services if you have been awarded financial aid and are considering dropping a course.
