Spring 2021 Guidance from School of Business

The School of Business welcomes our new and returning students, faculty, and staff at all of UConn's campuses. We know we will encounter challenges but we will support you in helping to create resolutions. Students are encouraged to reach out to our team via Virtual Drop-in Advising Hours through our chat or virtual meetings. If you cannot make those, please email undergrad.business@uconn.edu with any questions or concerns, if you wish to discuss extenuating circumstances, and/or otherwise need assistance with your course schedule. This website will provide you with the most up-to-date information concerning the School of Business policies and procedures for undergraduate education during Spring 2021.

The information on this page is accurate as of April 19, 2021 and will continue to be updated.

Important Announcements for Spring

  • Add/Drop Deadline: The deadline to add or drop a course has been extended to Wednesday, February 3, 2021. Any students who drop a course through Wednesday, February 3, 2021 will be able to do so and not have that course appear on their record. Courses dropped after this date will have a “W” for withdrawal recorded on the academic record.
  • Course Withdrawal Deadline: Normal course withdrawal policies are in place for the Spring 2021 term. Students can request to withdraw from a course until the spring course withdrawal deadline via the "Withdraw from a Course" form available on the Registrar's website.
  • Pass/Fail Policies and Procedures: The opportunity to place Spring 2021 courses on and take a course off pass/fail has been adjusted for all undergraduate students.  Students can request to place a course on pass/fail (or place a course back on graded from pass/fail) until the spring pass/fail deadlines via the "Pass/Fail Request" form available on the Registrar's website.  Otherwise, all normal pass/fail policies are in place, including:
    • Business students cannot put business courses on pass/fail. Business courses include the following subjects: ACCT, BADM, BUSN, BLAW, FNCE, HCMI, MEM, MENT, MKTG, and OPIM.
    • Business students and students seeking to apply to Business cannot place business critical courses on pass/fail to satisfy the critical course requirements.
    • Other courses may be placed on pass/fail per the Pass/Fail guidelines as outlined in the catalog noting that “courses placed on Pass/Fail may only be used as electives; they may not be used to satisfy the General Education Requirement, the major or related requirements, the skill requirements, the minor requirements, or any school or college course requirement.”
    • Courses placed on pass/fail in Spring 2021 will count towards the maximum of three courses (no more than 12 credits) of pass/fail allowed during your undergraduate career (this excludes courses placed on pass/fail in Spring 2020).
  • The spring 2021 list of in-person Business courses is available.
  • Resources for internet access and loaner devices are available through the State of CT and the University.
