A few things to think about before dropping/withdrawing from a class
- FIRST (MOST IMPORTANT) THING! A drop is different than a withdrawal. Drops are allowed through the first ten days for a 16-week course (first five days for an 8-week course) and you’ll receive a refund and the course won’t appear on your transcript. Withdrawals will result in a W on your transcript and there is no refund.
- Check out the Academic Calendar for drop/withdrawal dates.
- Drops or withdrawals could affect your Financial Aid. Check with a Financial Aid advisor before dropping or withdrawing from a course.
- Check below for more specifics on drops/withdrawals.
More specifics about withdrawals
- To withdraw from any class(es) the student can submit the request via WebAdvisor. In a situation where a student can’t submit via WebAdvisor, the Admissions & Records Office will assist students requesting a complete withdrawal.
- If withdrawing from all courses, please consult with the College.
- Students have until the end of the 12th week of a regular semester course (or an equivalent length of time in courses of different lengths) to request a withdrawal.
- Instructors may also initiate the withdrawal process if the student fails to comply with the attendance requirements as outlined in the course syllabus.
- All withdrawals earn a grade of “W,” which does not affect GPA or course credit.
- In cases involving academic dishonesty, instructors reserve the right to rescind a student initiated withdrawal.
