If you would like to drop a course from your schedule, log in to the Lesley University Self-Service portal. If you drop a course after the Add/Drop Deadline, you will receive a grade of 'W'. You are able to drop a course from your schedule until the Withdrawal Deadline. You can find these dates by visiting our Academic Calendar page.

To drop a course in the Self-Service portal, log in and select "Academics" and then "Register for Classes/View Schedule" from the menu on the left sidebar. On this page you will see the classes that you are currently enrolled in and your current schedule. Scroll to the course you would like to remove and select "Drop" as below:

Then, select the sections you would like to drop and click "Update":

Please note: You are not able to use Student Self-Service to drop every course on your schedule at once. Instead, submit a Request for Withdrawal/Leave of Absence (log in with your Lesley username and password). For information on leaves of absence, see the University's Academic Policies page. Please also note that dropping a course may affect your financial aid. Contact Student Financial Services before dropping a course if you'd like to know how revising your schedule might affect your financial aid award.
