Drop/Add, Withdrawal and Refunds

Drop/Add

Drop/add (dropping one class and adding another class in its place) may be done prior to the beginning of the term or during the first three days of the term. There are no financial charges for dropping and adding. A high school student who wishes to drop their course and add a different course must be eligible for the new course in order to enroll. Please see the course description on the Summer Session website to determine any prerequisites.

Wednesday, June 29–Drop/Add for Term 2 ends at 11:59 p.m. Visiting high school students must contact the Summer Session office (summer@duke.edu).

Dropping, Withdrawals, and Refunds:

Dropping

There is no financial obligation of tuition and fees for students who officially drop their course by the end of the drop/add period. Never attending a class for which you have registered, or nonpayment for classes for which you have registered, will not drop you from the class roll(s) nor release you from financial obligations. Course withdrawal fees will be assessed.

Withdrawal

After the first three days of the term when drop/add ends, students may withdraw from their course(s) for compelling reasons only with the permission of their academic dean. Visiting high school students should contact the Summer Session Office.

Term 2 Withdrawal deadline: Monday, July 25, 2022

Students will receive a "W" for each course withdrawn on their official transcript. There is a financial obligation of full tuition and fees for withdrawing from a course. No refunds are possible. In addition to being assessed full tuition and fees, students-by not officially withdrawing, and not attending-may receive a grade of F on their official transcript.

Summer Session retains the right to withdraw students from classes if they never attend, have not paid tuition and fees, or if they fail to clear with the bursar by the end of the drop/add period. Attendance in classes after the first three days of the term financially obligates the student for 100% of the tuition charge and the Transcript Fee. No tuition is refunded after the third day of each term.
