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:

  1. E-mail the professor your intention to drop the course and copy furnish This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
  2. Request the professor to communicate with AIIAS Online of the approval of your dropping.
  3. Fill up the Drop/Add Form and send it as an e-mail attachment to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
  4. A notification e-mail will be sent to you once you have been successfully dropped from the course.
  5. AIIAS Online will unenroll you from the course.

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).
