Important Course Drop Considerations

Dropping courses may impact your academic progress in your program.  Before dropping, consider whether the course is a prerequisite for another course and when it will be offered again. If you have questions, consult with your program advisor.

OSAP students should know that dropping courses may impact loans and the ability to maintain good academic standing with OSAP. Visit OSAP Academic Probation and Restriction and OSAP Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

If you have been assigned a probationary contract, the contract may require that you complete a specific course or specify your required course load. You may need permission from your program department to drop a course. If you have questions, consult with your program advisor.

International students should determine whether drops or withdrawals impact student visa requirements. Contact the International Student Support office to discuss this further.

If you do not enrol in and/or complete courses for multiple terms you will be discontinued from your program of study. See Non-Enrolment and Program Discontinuation for details for undergraduate students. You should also take note of the maximum timespan to complete your program. For details, please refer to the Undergraduate Graduation Requirements information in the Graduation and Convocation section in the Undergraduate Calendar.

If you are dropping all of your courses for the current term you should also check if you have course intentions for upcoming terms. If you do, you will be automatically enrolled in those courses in the following term and you will be academically and financially responsible for those courses unless you submit an appropriate withdrawal.

If you do not plan to attend TMU for one or more terms, you should request a Short-Term Withdrawal for the terms you will not be attending, or request a Permanent Withdrawal.

How to Drop a Course

Course drops can be completed by using the Drop Class feature within MyServiceHub. Remember to check your schedule in MyServiceHub after dropping your course to verify the courses were successfully dropped.
