Dropping is removing one or more classes from your schedule within the academic calendar deadline, but having at least one class left. Students may drop courses from their schedules for a limited time each semester. The online registration calendar for each semester indicates the deadlines for students to drop courses each term.
Courses officially dropped before the Census Date do not appear on a student’s transcript. See the online registration calendar each semester for Census Dates. It is the student’s responsibility to drop a course by the appropriate deadline.
To drop a class a student must first log in to Texas State Self-Service. Select the “Registration/Schedule Changes” link under the Registration page. This will allow you to select the semester for which you are dropping the class. Once the schedule is populated you will see a drop down action menu next to the class you wish to drop. Select a reason code and be sure to click “submit changes” at the bottom of the page. Please refresh your student detail schedule to make sure the drop went through.
Essentially you are swapping one class for another, so please follow the model below for instructions on how to do so under the "Registration/Schedule Changes" link in Texas State Self-Service:
