How do I add/drop a course?
To add/drop a class before the deadline
, simply log on to my.SMU

to discuss your options for such changes. Please note if you are only enrolled in one course and want to drop, see the next section regarding withdrawal from the University.
A student may drop a course with a grade of 'W' within approximately 8-10 weeks of the Spring and/or Fall term, and 5-6 weeks of the Combined Summer term. After that deadline date, students may not drop a class. All schedule changes must be processed within the deadline dates specified in the university calendar.

As a Lyle distance student, how do I complete labs?
At the graduate level, some courses do have labs attached to them. If there are no distance education sections (400), then it is not possible to take this course as a distance student.
Local students must have the ability to come to campus and do the lab.
If all the distance sections exist for this course, then the instructor has some arrangements for the lab component and the Lyle distance students. The interested student should contact the instructor to find out how they would fulfill the lab requirements.
It is important to note that the majority of graduate engineering programs offered at SMU can be completed through the Lyle Distance Education Program with no campus visits required.
