Dropping a Course
Before dropping a class, students should be aware of potential impact on financial aid, tuition, fees, refunds, etc. Check with the Student One Stop and consult the checklist for additional information.
Through the second week of the semester, each class a student drops will be removed from his/her record.
From the third through the ninth week of class, each class a student drops will stay on his/her record with a grade of “W” (withdrawn).
Weeks 10–last day of class
After the ninth week of class, students may use the Discretionary One-Time Late Drop form to drop a single course with no questions asked. When the student officially withdraws from the class, a “W” will appear on her/his transcript for this class.
Students who can document nonacademic reasons for withdrawing after the ninth week of class should use the Petition Form.
If a student stops attending a class and does not withdraw, the grade earned will appear on the transcript.
Use the registration system to officially drop a class.
Cancelling Out of College
Students who wish to drop all of their classes may do so at any time during the term until the last day of class. To do so, the student should contact the Office of the Registrar. Please refer to the canceling checklist for more information.
