Late Drop or File P/NP

The College of Letters and Science requires that approval for a late drop or Passed/Not Passed option be granted only if unexpected circumstances beyond your control occur after the deadline.  Late drops or Passed/Not Passed grading will not be approved for poor academic performance, change of interest, unavailability of graded work, lack of midterm result or lack of need for a grade in the class.  Timeliness is crucial.  Your chance of approval diminishes the longer you wait.  Following are the acceptable reasons are required documentation:
