Drop/Withdrawal Policy

DROPPING A COURSE DURING THE REFUND PERIOD
You may drop courses during the refund period using WebAdvisor and no grades will be recorded on your transcript. For information on the refund policy, please visit the Refund Policy page.
 
WITHDRAWING FROM A COURSE AFTER THE REFUND PERIOD IS OVER
You may withdraw from a course on WebAdvisor until the Friday prior to final exams for 15 week classes OR until the day before the last day if the class ends before final exam week. You are strongly encouraged to consult with your instructor and a counselor prior to processing a withdrawal.  If you have financial aid or scholarships, it is especially important for you to contact the Financial Aid Office prior to withdrawing.

You may withdraw from a course after the drop/refund period until the week prior to examinations. For early-ending courses, you may withdraw from a course after the refund period until one day prior to the end date of the course (prior to the final examination). Withdrawal from a course will generate a grade of "W" on your academic record and tuition/fees are not refunded.  A "W" grade is not figured in with your G.P.A.
