Course withdrawals

Previous Next

Once the drop period has ended - after the census date of the term - we enter the

Official Withdrawal period.  During this period an advisr's signature is required before the student can drop the class



OFFICIAL WITHDRAWAL PROCESS


? Complete the official withdrawal form available online or in the Admissions & records office.

? Submit completed form to Admissions and Records

? The grade of OW will appear on the student's transcript for courses officially withdrawn

? The OW grade is not punitive:  cumulative GPA and term GPA are not affected


 OFFICIAL WITHDRAWAL AFTER THE DEADLINE


There is a deadline for officially withdrawing from classes each term,

generally around the 75% point of the term.  Students wishing to withdraw after this point must follow a special process.


? Student sees the appropriate division dean responsible for the course

? Each division will have the official withdrawal form to complete for the student

? Submit completed form to Admissions and Records


UNOFFICIAL WITHDRAWALS


An unofficial withdrawal from one or more classes is given to students who leave school or stop attending classes without qualifying for or following procedures for official withdrawal (see above).  This includes students dropped by their instructor for excessive absences.  


? The grade of W will appear on the student's transcript for courses unofficially withdrawn

? The W grade is  punitive and acts as an "F" grade on the  cumulative GPA and term GPA


WITHDRAWALS AFTER THE END OF THE SEMESTER


Students may appeal to have a "W" grade (unofficial withdrawal) changed to an "OW" grade (official withdrawal) by making a formal request to the Admissions & Records office.  Students wishing to file this appeal should request the form "Request to Officially Withdraw after End of Semester".  Only "W" grades may be changed using this process.\
