Online courses offer convenience for the busy professional student. Several colleges and professional programs have adapted their courseware to include online and offline courses. With the addition of online courses, students don't have to reside in the city of their college or course. Classes can be taken anytime during the day, and assignment can be submitted by preset deadlines. Adding and dropping courses should be done by the college's pre-set guidelines that students receive in their syllabi.

Review your online course syllabus and locate the requirement for dropping an online course. Depending on your college, the drop deadline may be before the second week of online classes begins.

Review your calendar to see how long you have been in the class. Complete the drop form if you meet the drop requirement, or contact your counselor about the drop requirement.

Contact the college's cashier's office to see what fees are required or what refunds will be issued because of the dropped class.
