Withdraw dates can be found on our online academic calendar
Before withdrawing from a class, students should be aware of the impact of a withdrawal on their status as a full-time or part-time student. Visit with a Counselor or Financial Aid advisor for more details.
Drop vs. Withdrawal
A drop is different than a withdrawal. Students may drop a course within the first 10 days of a full semester course (5 days of an 8 week course) and will receive a refund. Students will not receive a refund upon withdrawing from a course.
Students have from the end of the drop period through the 75% point of the semester (12 weeks for a full semester course, 6 weeks for a half-semester course) to request a withdrawal. Check the academic calendar for specific dates.
How to Withdraw
- Requests for withdrawal can be made through WebAdvisor.
- Requests can be made in person with photo ID by visiting the Admissions & Records Office
- Requests can be made through the student's instructor for the particular course. In the absence of the instructor, the student must contact the Dean responsible for the course's scheduling.
Impact on Transcript
All withdrawals earn a grade of "W," which does not affect GPA, but will show on a student's transcript. A dropped course will not show on the academic transcript.
Impact on Financial Aid
Students receiving Federal Financial Assistance are subject to Federal repayment regulations if they stop attending the College (officially or unofficially) before 60% of a term has been completed. If the student stops attending before this time period the college and student must return a percentage of "unearned" financial aid. This will result in a bill being sent to the student. Students who do not repay their financial aid may lose their eligibility for future financial aid.
