* This calendar is subject to change without notice. In preparing the calendar for an academic year, it is impossible to avoid conflict with some religious holidays. As conflicts arise, efforts are made to make special arrangements for affected students.

** If a student is enrolled in only one course, a summer-only withdrawal must completed and received in the University Registrar’s Office before 4:00 pm on the last day of the session in which the course is offered. Mail or fax the form to: 125 Shields Building, University Park, PA 16802, FAX 814-863-1929.  If a student is enrolled in more than one course, a drop or late drop will apply, depending on the date.
