Undergrads: Officially withdraw from classes you’ve registered for but will not attend

University of St. Thomas policy states that undergraduate students who do not attend the first day of class may be dropped from the class roster at the discretion of the instructor; however, students should not assume that the instructor will drop them from a course if they fail to attend the first day.

University policy also requires undergraduate students who are registered for classes to pay their fees and receive grades for them.

Students are responsible for ensuring that they officially withdraw from any course in which they are registered but do not attend.

For more information, call the Office of the Registrar, (651) 962-6700.


  • First-semester, undergraduate freshmen must have the signatures of their advisers on the Change in Registration form before the Office of the Registrar can process it.
  • Students on a wait list are not officially enrolled; they must get the signatures of the instructors on a Change in Registration form (which can be found here) and then return the form to the Office of the Registrar in Room 106, Aquinas Hall, to become officially enrolled.
