Common Errors with Dropping Classes

This article covers some common errors with dropping classes and what they mean.

Cannot drop without also dropping co-requisite

error indicating corequisite must be dropped

This error means you cannot drop this class because it is a co-requisite of another class that you are enrolled in. Co-requisites are classes you must take at the same time (e.g., a laboratory class that you take at the same time as the main class). If you want to drop one of the co-requisite classes, you must also drop the other co-requisite class.

In the above example, to drop PHYS 226L, you must also drop PHYS 226.

Are you trying to drop a class so you can enroll in another section of the same class? Try using the Swap Classes feature to drop the current class and enroll in another section of the same class.

Hold (Negative Service Indicator)

If a hold (also known as a service indicator) is placed on your account, you may not be able to drop (or add) classes. You will need to view the hold details to find out what you need to do to clear the hold. When the hold is cleared, you will be able to drop the class. View instructions on how to view holds on your account.
