How do I drop classes?

If you're an undergraduate student who has only one class on your schedule and you want to drop it, you'll have to complete an Undergraduate Notice of Withdrawal Form and submit it to the Registrar's Office to be withdrawn from your course.

Exception: If you're on a co-op work term and you want to drop the last/only class from your schedule, you have two options:

  1. Request the drop by completing a Course Override Form and submit it to the Registrar's Office, or
  2. Send an email to quest@uwaterloo.ca asking that the course be dropped from your schedule.

  1. Log in to Quest.
  2. Under Academics select Enroll.Studnet Quest home page
  3. Select the Drop tab. If prompted, select the term then the Continue button.Drop tab in studnent Quest
  4. Select the course(s) you want to drop and then select the Drop Selected Classes button.Select classes to drop page in student Quest
  5. View the message and status results of your drop request. If you have errors, select Fix Errors to make changes to your request. View results - dropped courses page in student Quest
  6. Use the My Class Schedule button. Your revised schedule for the term is displayed. Note the absence of the dropped course(s).

Important: If you drop a course after the drop deadline date, "Enrolled" will appear under the Status column and a "WD" or "WF" will appear under the Grade column.
