Request for Q-Drop

Undergraduate students will normally be permitted four Q-drops during their undergraduate studies; however: State law prohibits students from having more than six dropped courses from all state institutions attended during their undergraduate career if they entered higher education as a first-time enrolled freshman beginning the 2007 fall semester and thereafter. 

Q-drops in one-hour courses will not count in the Texas A&M limit of four but will be included in the State-mandated limit of six dropped courses. If a lecture and companion lab are dropped at the same time, this will count as one Q-drop rather than two. (Texas A&M University Student Rule 1.16.4)

  • The Q-Drop Request Form is located on the Registrar's website.
  • You must bring the completed form to the academic advising office for your major for approval.
  • Forms may also be available in your departmental academic advising office.
  • Contact your advisor with questions regarding Q-Drops.
