Pursuant to section 51.907 of the Texas Education Code and based on PS 03.A.36 all courses dropped beginning in Fall 2007 are calculated into the 6 drop limit students are allowed during their academic career. At UHD, the courses dropped from Fall 2007 to Summer III 2013 have been calculated into the 6 drop limit of each student.
NOTE: Dropping all courses from your schedule during a term is considered a complete withdrawal and none of the dropped courses will be calculated towards the 6 drop limit that you are allowed during your academic career. This applies to all courses dropped during a term (complete withdrawal).

If you have reached or exceeded the 6 drop limit during the following time frame
Fall 2007 – Summer 2013
you may be eligible to appeal one or more of the drops. To do so you must follow these instructions by the deadline in order to seek an exemption for any of the drops.
