  1. Voluntary withdrawals from curriculum courses
    1. A student may only drop a class for a partial refund on or before the official 10% date of the semester. After the schedule adjustment period (first three class days of the semester), students who drop one or more of their courses on or before the official 10% date of the term must log into WebAdvisor to drop the course(s). In the case of drops prior to the official 10% date of the semester, the course(s) will not be included on the transcript.
    2. Students officially withdrawing from a course after the official 10% date of the semester must see the instructor of the course or the appropriate Dean.
    3. All official withdrawals must be submitted to the Registrar during the first 75% of the term. Students may not voluntarily withdraw from a class during the final 25% of the term. Students must officially withdraw from any course they stop attending in order to ensure that they will not receive an F in the course. For semester classes the 75% point occurs at the end of the 12th week. For summer semester it occurs in the middle of the seventh week. Deadline dates will be published in the Student Calendar.
    4. In the case of a withdrawal, the student will receive a grade of W which will not influence the grade point average, but which will appear on the student’s official transcript.
    5. Students receiving financial aid should notify the Financial Aid Office if they withdraw from a course or withdraw from the College.
  2. Involuntary withdrawals from curriculum courses
    1. Students who register for a course and do not attend classes prior to 10% of the contact hours of the course will be dropped by the instructor.
    2. Any student who accumulates absences in excess of 10% of the course contact hours may be withdrawn from the class. If the student is withdrawn from a class during the final 25% of the term for excessive absences, the student will receive a grade of F.
    3. The instructor may make exceptions to this policy in cases of extenuating circumstances such as serious illness or job transfer and award a grade of W during the final 25% of the term. These exceptions must be approved by the appropriate Dean and the Vice President for Instruction.
