For information on the start date of specific courses, access the "Search for Classes" feature on Self-Service and look at the "Section Information," or contact the Office of Records and Advising at 773-298-3501. Students who register for a class are responsible for tuition unless they officially withdraw either in the Office of Records and Advising or through Self-Service. Fees are not refundable. Notifying the instructor or ceasing to attend the class does not constitute an authorized withdrawal.

A class may be dropped without academic penalty until the 3/4 point of the section. For information on the drop date of specific courses, access the "Search for Classes" feature on Self-Service and look at the "Drop Deadline" column, or contact the Office of Records and Advising at 773-298-3501.
