Withdrawals/Drops

All students are encouraged to meet with their advisor and instructor prior to dropping a course. In addition, students should review the Academic Calendar located in the Schedule of Classes for "W" withdrawal/drop dates and the refund schedule. For more information regarding refunds, please see the Schedule of Refunds in this catalog. Students should be aware that dropping a course will affect their financial aid, and they should consult the Financial Aid Office prior to withdrawal. Students are encouraged to maintain a copy of their Withdrawal Form.

Students must withdraw in writing by one of the following methods:

  1. Fill out the Withdrawal Form available in the Registrar's Office.
  2. Send a Letter of Withdrawal to the Registrar's Office. The letter must contain the student's name, student ID number, the course(s) from which the student is withdrawing, the reason for withdrawing, and the student's signature. Letters may be mailed or faxed to the Registrar's Office. For mailed withdrawals, the effective date of withdrawal will be the date when the withdrawal is officially completed and recorded by the Registrar's Office. A copy of the withdrawal will be mailed to the student once the procedure has been completed.
