What is a retroactive course add or drop?
You request adding/dropping a class(es) from a previous semester. To request a retroactive add/drop, you must complete a retroactive add or Petition for Course Drop which can be found at http://ou.sjsu.edu/forms. Once approved, you can add/drop course(s) and receive a grade of “W” by securing the approval signature of the instructor, department chair and signature of authorized IES official. No refund is given for requesting a retroactive drop. Failure to drop officially from a course taken in a previous semester generates a failing grade of “F” or “WU”.
