Part-of-Term Tuition Liability Dates

There are standard Part-of-Term codes designated for courses that meet for the full semester (1), the first half of the semester (1F), or the last half of the semester (1L).  Some courses meet for less than the full semester and have modified add, drop, and tuition liability dates.  The part-of term code for non-standard courses will be listed in the section notes on Patriot Web.  Please refer to the chart below for specific add/drop deadline dates.

Please note:  Courses may be assigned to a Part-of-Term code that doesn’t necessarily match the exact start and end date for the section.  Students should consult Patriot Web for the exact start and end dates for these non-standard courses.
