Otherwise, the Registrar will inform both the faculty and the advisor of the drop request and wait until the next business day before processing the drop.
  • Petitions to drop courses after the April 10 deadline should be directed via email to registrar@denison.edu. The Registrar will provide further information on the process for petitions to late drop.
