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.
Excused Withdrawal from Classes
An Excused Withdrawal (EW) is used to record a student’s withdrawal due to verifiable, documented reasons beyond the student’s control. Reasons and verifiable documentation can include, but are not limited to a note from a doctor stating the student is not currently able to complete the work due to illness; employment verification of a new job; a booking report; police report of an accident; or any other documentation that proves the student’s completion of a course is impossible due to reasons beyond the student’s control. The form to initiate the withdrawal in on the Admissions and Records forms page.
