Add, Drop & Audit

You may drop or add a course to your registration during specified periods (refer to Olin academic calendar above) at the beginning of each term. A faculty member's signature isn't required to add or drop a class.

Adding a Course Sign on to WebSTAC and select "Add a Course" from the registration main menu.

Dropping or Withdrawing From a Course Sign on to WebSTAC and select "Drop a Course" from the registration main menu.

  • Before the first day of a short (three-day or week-long) course, within the first two weeks of a mini-semester course or the first four weeks of a semester-long course, you may “drop” a course. Dropped courses will not appear on your transcript.

  • You may withdraw from a mini-semester course within two to four weeks and a full-semester course within four to eight weeks. Withdrawn courses remain on your transcript with an indication of “W.”

  • After four weeks of a mini-course or eight weeks of a full-semester course, you may petition to withdraw from a course for extenuating circumstances, such as health.

1. Fill out the Petition Form. 2. Submit the petition to your advisor.
3. If it's approved by the Academic Review Committee, your grade in the course will be “W.”

Auditing a Course Students wishing to audit a course (grade option “A”) must first speak with the professor of the course to determine if auditing is an option and, if so, learn the specific requirements for a successful audit.  If approval is granted, the student should then request that the course instructor email Jacqueline Carter (slack@wustl.edu). She will then change the grade option for the course from "P" to "A."

  • Audited courses do not apply to the 66 credits required to graduate, but do apply to the maximum credits allowed each semester without paying additional tuition.

  • Audited courses are listed on student transcripts. A grade of "L" is given for a "successful audit," and a grade of "Z" is given for an "unsuccesful audit."

Audited courses do not meet prerequisite requirements. For example, if Course A is listed as a prerequisite for Course B, and the student has audited Course A, s/he has not met the prerequisite requirement for Course B. Instructor permission would be required in order for the student to take Course B.
