  • The Deadline for adding a course is the second Friday of each semester. After this date, a student must petition to the Ohio State ATI Academic Affairs Office. A late add will be approved only if unusual or extenuating circumstances exist beyond the student's control. If the circumstances do not meet these criteria, you will not be permitted to attend the course.
  • You will only receive credit for courses in which you are officially enrolled.

If you need to DROP a course AFTER THE TENTH WEEK of the semester:

  • A petition to drop must be completed and returned to the Ohio State ATI's Academic Affairs Office. Approval will be based on evidence of circumstances beyond the student's control. Lack of preparation or dissatisfaction with the course are not acceptable reasons to drop a course or withdraw this late in the semester. If the petition is denied, you will continue to be enrolled in the course and are expected to complete the requirements for a final grade. If the petition is approved a mark of "W" will be entered on your record.
