If you need to drop a course and you have already dropped a course this semester, you will need to schedule an appointment to discuss requesting an Exception to University Policy for a second W with an advisor.
If you are on academic probation or dismissal and would like to drop a course with a W you need to schedule an appointment to get this permission.
Additional information from the Registration Guide online
"An additional drop period for undergraduate students begins at the close of the schedule adjustment period and ends at the end of the tenth week of classes. During the drop period a student may drop a maximum of four credits or one course. Courses dropped during this time (after the schedule adjustment period) will be recorded
on the student’s transcript with a “W” notation for undergraduate students only. (This mark is not used in computing the semester or cumulative GPA.) No notation will appear on the graduate record for courses dropped during the drop period."
