Withdrawal Information

Official Withdrawal 
Students who intend to withdraw from the College must initiate withdrawal procedures for each class in which they are enrolled. Students are held accountable for clearing all obligations with the College including fees, library books, equipment, and lockers. The deadline for withdrawal from classes with a guaranteed symbol “W” is between the second and eighth week. Students wishing to drop with a ‘W’ grade after the “W” deadline date must petition with the Records Office and provide documentation of an extenuating circumstance. Refer to the Class Schedule for deadlines.

Unofficial Withdrawal
Students who simply stop attending class and do not drop through eServices have unofficially withdrawn. These students may receive an ‘FW’ and a last date of attendance in every class they stop attending.

Administrative Withdrawal
Administrative withdrawals may occur for academic or disciplinary reasons, or for non-payment of fees.  If the administrative withdrawal occurs after the refund period, the student will not be entitled to a refund or waiver of registration fees.
