Please note that if you plan to continue in the course, you should prioritize getting them added to your schedule. You will need to add back all of the classes that you were scheduled for at the time you were dropped and will be given a limited window in which to pay for the courses. If you have been dropped for non-payment in the past, the SSC can walk you through your options.
You will need to complete the release of information form in your Student Center: http://buckeyelink.osu.edu.
Your rank and academic standing will be listed on your Advising Report, available in Buckeyelink. If you are in good academic standing, there will be no notation on your record and your cumulative GPA will be above 2.0. You can also review hours required for each rank at: http://registrar.osu.edu/policies/index.asp

Make sure that you are not registered for classes. You will automatically be placed on a Leave of Absence once the term is underway. When you are ready to return and take classes, contact our office the term before for an appointment and we can reactivate your account—you will not need to submit a new application to Ohio State.
You can try to re-add the class on your own but may need to meet with an advisor to re-add the class. Appointments are scheduled by calling 292-0646 or stopping at the front desk in 352 Denney Hall. You will also want to bring a letter or email from the course instructor verifying that you are still attending to your advising appointment. If the class fills back up after you drop it, you can only re-add with permission from the instructor.
Every student at Ohio State enrolls in survey their first semester, and each college will have their own version of the course. The University Exploration Survey class is designed to introduce you to all the majors available at the university, teach you the decision making process to select a major, and introduce you to the university and its policies and procedures. This class taught by your academic adviser. Attendance is mandatory and the class is graded A through E, and thus affects your GPA. All students must take survey their first semester.
