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 any state institution 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 University 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 of your major for approval.
  • Forms may also be available in your departmental academic advising office.
  • Contact your advisor with questions regarding Q-Drops.

Withdrawal from the University

Students can apply for a withdrawal through the Howdy Portal, and information about withdrawal can be accessed through the Howdy Portal as well.
