16 Course DropsYou may drop/add without penalty until August 27 by 5:00 p.m. on Banner using your current registration pinBe wise about dropping a course. If you feel like you are having difficulty, go see your professor or meet up with a tutor. Just don’t wait until the last week of classes to do this!

After these dates pass, you will not be able to drop a course and will remain in your classes for the remainder of the semester.
18 Academic Eligibility Standards Good academic standing requires a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better.Be mindful that many majors require a 2.5 to be admitted into their program so even though ECU says 2.0 or better represents good academic standing, you need to know what your major requires.
