    This screenshot shows what MyNC looks like. MyNC displays the courses that you are currently enrolled in, as well as the Last Drop Date and Last Drop Date – W.

    Click on the Drop this Course link next to the course that you wish to drop.

  5. Depending on the course, there are several different warning messages that you may receive. Please read these warning messages carefully and proceed with caution by clicking Yes or No.

    If you drop more than one course you could be changing your status from full-time to part-time; this could affect your eligibility for OSAP, bursaries and scholarships. You will see a warning message if you try to drop enough courses to change to a part-time status.

  6. Upon successfully completing the Course Drop, you will receive a message indicating that your enrollments have been updated.
  7. You will be asked to confirm your Course Drop. Pay special attention to the warnings regarding prerequisites for future courses. If you are unsure, please contact your Program Coordinator or Academic Advisor before dropping a course.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are enrolled in all of your required courses each term.
