Note of Importance: Six-Course Drop Limit

Under Section 51.907 of the Texas Education Code, “an institution of higher education may not permit a student to drop more than six courses including any course a transfer student has dropped at another institution of higher education.” This statute was enacted by the State of Texas in spring 2007 and applies to students who enroll in a public institution of higher education as a first-time freshman in fall 2007 or later. Any course a student drops is counted toward the six-drop limit if “(1) the student was able to drop the course without receiving a grade or incurring an academic penalty; (2) the student’s transcript indicates or will indicate that the student was enrolled in the course, and; (3) the student is not dropping the course in order to withdraw from the institution.”

Students must provide documentation for the following drop reasons: (1) change in work schedule; (2) care for a sick, injured, or needy person; (3) military duty; (4) severe illness; (5) death of a close relative.
