Add, Drop, and Withdrawal Info

Enrolled students must add or drop courses by the dates and deadlines listed in their program’s academic calendar. You may add, drop, or withdraw via Buff Portal or by email at

If you fail to drop by the deadline you may receive a grade of F and you may be liable for any tuition and fees. You may withdraw from a credit course after the published drop deadline. Withdrawals will result in a W on your academic record.

Administrative Drop Policy

If you do not attend your courses regularly during the first week through the last day to drop, you may be administratively dropped. Nonattendance does not constitute withdrawal. If you have questions, check with your instructor or contact us.

Grade Replacement Policy

You may be eligible for grade replacement if you are a degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate student at CU Boulder who earned a C- or lower (undergrads), or a C+ or lower (grad students) in your most recent prior attempt of a course (W grades don’t count). Law and nondegree students are not eligible for grade replacement. Learn more about CU Boulder’s grade replacement policy.

To request grade replacement, fill out a grade replacement form by the deadline listed on the academic calendar.

If you have questions about the policy, contact the CE Student Services at or schedule an appointment.

Now that you’ve selected your favorite Continuing Education courses, email or print the information, including class number, to more easily search Buff Portal and enroll. Still have questions? Contact an advisor.
