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 and you’ll receive a refund and the course won’t appear on your transcript. Withdrawals will result in a W on your transcript.
- Check out the Academic Calendar for drop/withdrawal dates.
- Withdrawals could affect your Financial Aid. Check with a Financial Aid advisor before dropping a course.
- Check below for more specifics on drops/withdrawals.
More specifics about withdrawals
- To withdraw from all classes, the student can submit the request via WebAdvisor. In a situation where a student can’t submit via WebAdvisor, the Admissions & Records Office is willing to assist students requesting a complete withdrawal.
- Students have until the end of the twelfth 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 but deletes the course credit(s) for those course(s).
