Withdrawing From a Course
Students may withdraw from a course beginning week 3 through the end of week 13 of a 15-week course and through the end of 5 1/2 weeks of a 71/2-week course. Students enrolled in a second module course may withdraw once the course has begun.
To withdraw from a course, the student must complete a Course Withdrawal Form with their Departmental Advisor. The signed withdrawal form will be sent to the Registrar's Office for processing and a copy will be forwarded to the Financial Aid Office. A "W" will be assigned to the course and will appear on the transcript. The "W" will not be used in the calculation of the GPA, but will count as credits attempted. Students who withdraw from a course will be charged 100% tuition. Excessive withdrawals can impact satisfactory academic progress and jeopardize financial aid eligibility, so students are strongly encouraged to get both academic and financial aid advice before withdrawing from courses.
Course withdrawal deadlines are published in the college catalog and are available on the website on the Current Students page. Deadlines will be strictly enforced. Withdrawals are not permitted beyond the deadline. After the deadline, students will receive an earned grade as determined by the instructor.
Failure to attend class is not an appropriate method of either dropping or withdrawing from a course. Non-attendance does not cancel the financial obligation to pay fees and tuition incurred at the time of registration for classes. Students will remain liable for any outstanding payments of tuition and fees due the college.
For financial consequences of withdrawing from a course after the start of a semester, refer to the institutional refund policy. Students should check with the Financial Aid Office to determine what financial penalty will be assessed as a result of withdrawing from a course.
