Recent legislation impacts Q drops

Published on Thu 08/12/21

The Texas Legislature recently passed SB 165, a law impacting Q drops in courses during Spring 2020, Summer 2020, as well as academic year 2020-2021 (Fall 2020, Spring 2021, and Summer 2021). The law permits Texas A&M University to exempt these drops from counting against the student’s institutional and state drop limits.

Academic records have been updated by the Office of the Registrar in response to SB 165. For the specified terms, all Q drops originally recorded as a “Q” grade now appear with a “W” grade and will no longer be included in a student’s total count of total Q-drops.
