Last day to add/drop spring courses

The last day to add Track A and full semester courses (without instructor approval) is Friday, January 19.
Beginning Monday, January 22, students will need to have the green filled section/late add form signed and brought to the Registrar’s Office in order to be added to a full semester or Track A course or change sections.
Full semester courses may be dropped on MyMichiganTech (Banweb) through Wednesday, January 24, 5:00PM. That date is also the 100% refund date for dropping a full semester course, but with plateau tuition this would only apply if students go below fulltime or are currently part time.
