Important Change – Add/Drop is Now 1 Week

After dialogue with the Student Government Association (SGA), faculty, advisors, and others, UMass has shortened add/drop to one week to safeguard students against starting the semester two weeks behind in their classes. Undergraduate students may add or drop a course with no record through September 8, 2021. Students will not be able to add a class after Sept 8th (without a late add petition) and students who drop a course after September 8th will have a “W” on their transcript.

If you have questions, you are welcome to speak with an advisor or peer advisor in the SBS Pathways Center in Thompson 128. Our office is open Monday – Friday from 8:30am to 5pm.
