Academic Considerations

Determine the appropriate advisor to contact.

  • Oshkosh Campus Undergraduate Students: Contact your assigned advisor (UARC, SSS or faculty advisor). Online Students contact your assigned advisor in Online & Continuing Education
  • Fox Cities and Fond du Lac students: Contact your advisor
  • International Students: Contact Theresa Anderson at iss@uwosh.edu (Oshkosh and Fond du Lac Campus) or Sarah Christensen at christes@uwosh.edu (Fox Cities Campus)
  • Graduate Students: Contact your graduate program advisor or coordinator

 

Discuss the following with the appropriate advisor.

  • How are you doing in the course? Do you know, with a reasonable amount of certainty, your current grade?
  • Have you talked with your instructor about your grade and ways in which you could improve it?
  • Have you sought extra help through tutoring, supplemental instruction, study groups, etc.?
  • Will dropping the course put you below full-time status?
  • Will dropping this course affect your course options for next semester?
  • Will dropping this course extend your time to graduation?
  • Is it past the drop date?
  • View academic deadlines.

 

NOTE: Academic drop deadlines DO NOT MATCH financial aid and refund deadlines.

Fiscal Considerations

Contact Financial Aid (https://uwosh.edu/financialaid/) to discuss the following:

  • Do you receive financial aid? Financial Aid includes loans. (If no, skip to section Tuition/Fee Considerations)
  • Will you have to repay any portion of your financial aid?
  • Will dropping the course put you below full-time status? Will adding a course put you above the 18 credit tuition threshold?
  • Do you know your current status as it relates to Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)?
  • How will dropping a course affect your SAP status and eligibility for financial aid?
  • View information about SAP.
  • How will adding a course affect your financial aid?

 

NOTE: Financial Aid uses the “Census Date” – 10th day of the 14-week term or equivalent.

Tuition/Fee Considerations

Contact Student Accounts (https://uwosh.edu/finance-administration/student-financial-services/) to discuss the following:

  • Will dropping the course put you below full-time status?
  • Will I actually owe more for tuition if I drop a course now?
  • Has the refund deadline passed?
  • View refund deadlines.
  • Will adding a course put you above the 18 credit tuition threshold for full-time tuition?

 

NOTE: Refund deadlines DO NOT MATCH financial aid and academic deadlines.
