Adding or Dropping Classes
Add -- To increase the number of classes in your schedule

Schedule Changes -- Add/Drop Policies
After a student has registered for a semester, schedule changes can be made only during the scheduled Add/Drop periods. For the exact days of the Add/Drop period, a student may check the University Academic Calendar and Registration Timetable.
A student may register and Add or Drop a course using the UT Arlington Registration website, MyMav. The MyMav registration system is available 24 hours a day, except on Sundays from 3:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m.
Implications of Dropping a Class
Before students drop a class, they should see an academic advisor or other appropriate UTA staff to consider the following implications of their actions. Some common implications are:
- Slowed progress in a student's major and toward graduation
- Financial aid or scholarships
- Current semester tuition and fees
- Future tuition and fees
Process for Dropping a Class
During the Add/Drop period, a student may drop a course using the MyMav system.
After the Add/Drop period is over, a student may still drop a class, but "adds" are not allowed. These drops must be made in person through an academic advisor for your major.
No drops are allowed after the final drop date in the tenth week of the semester.
For the exact dates of the Add/Drop period, a student may check the University Academic Calendar.
Students who want to drop all of their courses for a semester need to withdraw from the University.
Important Fall Date: Wednesday, October 30, 2013 is the last day to drop a class for the fall semester.
If you have more questions about the add/drop policy, please schedule an appointment to speak with academic advisor or call 817-272-3140.
