Course Withdrawal

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Students who fail to post regular attendance will be withdrawn from a course after 21 days of non-attendance, receive a "WA" grade and be subject to all effects of a regular withdraw.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.
