Withdrawal From A Course
Students who wish to withdraw from a course must notify their academic advisor and submit the official schedule change form or written request to the Office of the Registrar. A grade of "W" will be entered. W grades do not count in the student's semester or cumulative GPA. The withdrawal is not official until the paperwork is processed through the Office of the Registrar. A student who simply stops going to class or who fails to submit the request according to the deadline will receive a letter grade based upon the entire semester/ term's work.
The scheduled deadline to withdraw from a 16 week semester long course is approximately 10 weeks into the course. Comparably, students in eight week courses will have through the end of the 5th calendar week of the course to withdraw with a W grade. Students who are enrolled in the course on or after the first scheduled day will be charged full or a prorated tuition for courses dropped after the first week (5th business day). Students who are enrolled in a three week summer course on or after the first scheduled day will be charged full tuition for courses dropped after the end of the second meeting day. Failure to attend/participate does not exempt tuition/fee charges.
