Sometimes work, unexpected difficulties, or other issues can arise in your life. When these things occur, a course withdrawal may be possible. It is always suggested that you first examine other options, such as utilizing the late policy or other resources before considering a withdraw.
After the unregistration (drop) deadline as passed, you may withdraw from a course until Monday of week 6 of a term. You should always contact your Student Advisor prior to withdrawing from a course.
The following things should be kept in mind while considering whether withdrawing is the best option.
A course withdrawal will result in a "W" grade. "W" grades do not count towards Grade Point Average (GPA) and will reflect as "W" on official transcripts.
A withdrawal is considered not completing a course. Generally this means you will need to retake the course for completion at a later date. This can affect completion rate for SAP.
Tuition and fees will not be adjusted for a withdrawal.
If you are using federal financial aid, a "W" can affect funds that have been received or have yet to be disbursed. See Return of Title IV
If after speaking to a Student Advisor a withdrawal is found to be the best option, you must complete the withdrawal process through the student portal.
Students who fail to post regular attendance will be withdrawn from a course after 21 days of non-attendance, receive a "WA" grade and be subject to all effects of a regular withdraw. See the Attendance Policy for more information.
