|How to Drop/Withdraw from a Course|
Dropping a course may only be done during the dropping period, which is one week after the student’s first access of that course, by following the steps below:
A course that is dropped during the drop/add period will not appear on the student’s transcript, but will still show on the academic record.
A grade of W indicates withdrawal from the course after the end of the drop/add period, but before 50% of the course has been taught. If the student withdraws after 50% of the contact hours, this withdrawal will appear on the transcript as withdrawal with a passing grade (WP) or withdrawal with a failing grade (WF), based on assessments completed. Administrative withdrawal may occur when a student is absent from more than 15% of the course.
NOTE: The financial implications of dropping or withdrawing from a course can be found in the Registration and Payment section (please scroll to the bottom of the page).
