Withdrawal from Classes

Check the Class Schedule – Important Dates for the last day to withdraw from most classes without a withdrawal notation ("W"). Students who withdraw from a class after the last day to add/drop and before the last day to withdraw will have a withdrawal notation for that class on their academic record. Short courses must be dropped before 20% of the course has been completed to be eligible for a drop without "W." For some very short courses, 20% of the course may be the first day of class. Review your Schedule/Bill for your course deadlines.

Students registered in a semester length class after the last day to withdraw must receive an evaluative grade (A, B, C, D, F, Pass, No Pass) or Incomplete (I) for the class. Students registered in short courses after the day that 60% of the course has been completed must receive an evaluative grade.

COVID-19 Affected Students

Irvine Valley College recognizes that as a student, you are making great efforts to continue your education in the face of uncertainty and challenges. Students and colleges have all made admirable efforts to meet the challenges posed by the statewide COVID-19 pandemic emergency. We at IVC understand this and want you to know that if you find yourself in this situation, you have options.

The State of California has granted Irvine Valley College and Saddleback College the ability to offer two options to students experiencing challenges with coursework during Spring 2021, Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 terms.
