Advising

Withdrawal Process

Drop/Withdrawal Process

As a reminder, students who now wish to drop a Full-Term (10 week) or First 5-Weeks class (while still remaining enrolled in at least one other class) must obtain a signature from their professor and complete a DROP/ADD/WITHDRAWAL FORM.  After completion, this form should be taken to the Records Office.  Students who wish to drop all of their classes, however, must speak with an Advisor/Counselor in the Advising Center or Completion Advisor in an Academic Division.  The last day to withdraw and receive a “W” for a Full-Term summer class is July 19, 2016, The last day to withdraw from a First 5-Weeks course is June 22, 2016.

Before dropping a class, students should remember that sometimes merely speaking with the instructor might ease their minds and there may not be a need to drop it at all.  Students may be doing better academically than they think OR after conferring with the instructor they may mutually decide on some strategies that may help them improve their performance.  There are many student support services available.  (See "College Success Zone" on the website.)

It is extremely important for students who are receiving financial aid (grants, loans, lottery funds, scholarships, etc.) to notify the Financial Aid Office prior to dropping a class or withdrawing from the College.
