Withdrawing from Courses


When intending to withdraw from courses, it is the student’s responsibility to notify the Registrar’s Office in writing or by dropping courses online through BannerWeb. Drop/Add forms can be obtained from the Registrar’s Office. The date of the drop or withdrawal will be the date that the Registrar’s Office receives the completed Drop/Add Form from the student or the date that the student drops the course(s) on BannerWeb.

Students who are unable to drop or withdraw from courses in person or with BannerWeb may do so by mailing or faxing a written notice that contains their student ID number and signature.

To protect our students’ right to privacy, drops and withdrawals may not be conducted by telephone or e-mail.

For courses dropped after the Add/Drop period, this is considered a withdrawal, a "W" is issued on the transcript and no tuition refund is provided. Please note that if a student is dropping all courses or their only course, the $135 non-refundable registration fee is still assessed to the student account.

There is a point in the semester when students may not withdraw from courses and therefore must accept the grade earned in the course. Please see the IMPORTANT DATES section for the deadlines associated with withdrawing.
