Forms only accepted if submitted by student's advisor of record.
New Students: during the first semester at Bowdoin, students may drop a course in the third through the seventh weeks with the permission of their student dean and academic advisor. Extended drops used in a student's first semester do not count against the career limit of two.
Returning Students: after their first semester, students may drop a total of two courses in their Bowdoin career during weeks three through six of a semester with the permission of their academic advisor.
Students considering using an Extended Drop should correspond with their academic advisor and keep the following in mind:
Using an extended drop is a serious decision that can impact degree completion and should only be made in extenuating circumstances.
Courses dropped through Extended Drop will not appear on the transcript.
Students who use an extended drop in their first semester are still eligible to use two additional career extended drops.
