All about Adding, Dropping, and Withdrawing
All about "Adding," "Dropping," and "Withdrawing..."
Students may "Add" courses during the registration period, right up through the first week of courses, also known as the "Add/Drop" period.
Students may "Drop" courses during the registration period, right up through the first week of courses, also known as the "Add/Drop" period. Courses "Dropped" will not be charged to the student, nor will they appear on a student's record.
Once the "Add/Drop" period expires (typically at the end of the first week of courses), the only method for removing oneself from a course is to "Withdraw." Students should be aware that "Withdrawing" results in a grade of "W" on the permanent student record; however, it does not carry a value and is not calculated into the GPA. Also, students should be aware the timeframe for Withdrawing expires about mid-term. Tuition is not refunded for Withdrawn courses; Withdrawn courses may impact a student's financial aid and a students Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
IMPORTANT NOTE: If a student is registered for a course and chooses not to attend but does not Drop the course, the student is still obligated for the tuition.
Withdraws cannot be processed via E-Services or online from the website.
- Students Withdrawing from one or more classes must meet with an advisor and complete the Withdraw Form.
- The Withdraw Form must include an advisor's or faculty member's signature.
- The Withdraw Form is submitted to Student Affairs for processing.
- The student’s transcript will reflect a “W” for the course grade.
