Students may add and drop classes through the first Friday of the semester. Students may withdraw from classes without academic penalty through the 10th week of each semester. The deadlines each semester are included in the Academic Calendar. Classes dropped after the first week of the semester, but before the deadlines, will have a “W” (Withdrew Passing) recorded on the student’s academic transcript. If a student withdraws from a class after the deadline, a “WF” (Withdrew Failing) will be recorded for that class on the transcript. A “WF” impacts the G.P.A. in the same manner as an “F.”
Students may appeal a “WF” grade to the Academic Standards Committee, which is chaired by the Vice President for Academic Affairs or designee. Official “Drop” forms are available from the Academic Advisors. Please note that withdrawals may affect financial aid eligibility. It is the student’s responsibility to check with the Office of Financial Aid before officially withdrawing from a class.
