If you are considering dropping/withdrawing from aÂ course please review the current refund schedule to see if you qualify for a refund and to view our refund policy:
Dropping and Adding Courses
Students who wish toÂ change their schedules can do so online prior to the first day of the term or once the term has begun by submitting anÂ Add/Drop form to the Office of Records and Registration. Please note if a class has already met, students will not be permitted to enroll in it. Students may not enroll in an online class after the term has begun. All registrations in an online class must be done prior to the first day of the term. All registrations in a hybrid class must be done by the first day of the term. Permission to add a course after it has metÂ can only beÂ granted by the appropriate Academic Dean.
Students who do not complete the course and who do not complete the withdrawal processÂ will receive an F unless there are extenuating circumstances. If extenuating circumstances prevail, the student must contact the Office of Counseling and Student Success to be considered for the late withdrawal process.Â The Academic Calendar should be reviewed carefully in terms of when the last date to drop classes is.
Withdrawing from Classes
To withdraw officially from a course, students must complete a Withdrawal Form orÂ may submit a request electronically following the instructions under “Withdrawing from Courses.” Â Merely notifying the instructor is not an official withdrawal.Â Students who officiallyÂ withdraw fromÂ a course will receive a â€śWâ€™â€™ designation. A “W” designation will not adversely affect the student’s GPA.Â The withdrawal will be effective as of the date the student submits the Withdrawal Form to the Office of Records and Registration. There is a $10 Service Fee perÂ withdrawn course.Â Students who do not complete the course and who do not complete the withdrawal processÂ will receive an â€śFâ€ť unless there are extenuating circumstances. If extenuating circumstances prevail, the student must contact the Office of Counseling Services to be considered for the late withdrawal process.
If a student drops courses within the refund period, Â a refund of tuition will be processed according to the refund policy datesÂ and no courses or grades will be included on the studentâ€™s transcript.Â Depending on the term and the week the student is withdrawing from he/she may receive withdrawal designations.Â However, the faculty member may still assign a grade of â€śFâ€™â€™ if he or she properly notified the student by using the Faculty Notification of Possible Failure Form. After 75% of the semester is completed, students are committed to complete the courses and receive grades.Â A student who fails to officially withdraw will receive a grade of â€śF.â€ťÂ The â€śWâ€ť designation will not be issued after 75% of the course is completed unless extenuating circumstances prevail or without approval from the faculty member.
Note to all financial aid recipients:Â Please contact the Financial Aid Office before withdrawing from classes. Withdrawing may affect the amount of aid you were awarded or the amount of aid you can expect to receive.
