Your UNC Online outgoing messages include a "Drop Disclaimer" message and "Exchange Next Steps" message. The "Drop Disclaimer" message is for home students and the "Exchange Next Steps" message is for host students.
- The drop disclaimer appears when a student clicks on the "Drop/Withdraw" button.
- The "Exchange Next Steps" message is automatically sent to students when they register for courses through UNC Online (it is sent to their home campus email account). Their host campus student ID number is included in the message.
- Also, the message is listed on their "My Registered Courses" page (under the "View Details" option). However, their host campus student ID number is not included on this page (they must refer to the email message to access their host campus student ID number).
Steps for viewing/editing messages:
1. Log into UNC Online
2. Click "Admin" (located in the upper right corner)
3. Click "Outgoing Alerts and Messages" (located in your "Admin Menu")
4. Filter by message type ("Drop Disclaimer" or "Exchange Next Steps") and click "Go"
5. Edit the message and click "Submit"
Example of "Drop Disclaimer" message:
Course Drop (during the Drop-Add period)
Students may add courses, drop courses, or change the section of a course through the published Drop-Add period without academic or financial penalty. The Drop-Add period is the first five days of a fall or spring semester or by the date specified on the academic calendar for summer semester. The course will not appear on your transcript.
Course Drop (after the Drop-Add period)
Drops made after the Drop-Add period are included in the term and cumulative attempted hours but are not computed in the student's grade point average. Students receive a grade of W and these courses will be posted on the student's academic transcript. Students are still financially responsible for any tuition and fees associated with the course dropped after the Drop-Add period.
