Withdrawing from a course after the fourteenth calendar day of a semester

Students who have established attendance may withdraw from a course after the fourteenth day of the semester through the end of week 13 of a 15-week course and through the end of 5 ½ weeks of a 7 ½ week course.  If the fourteenth calendar day of the semester falls on a Sunday the deadline to withdraw will be that following Monday.

To withdraw from a course, students must complete a Course Withdrawal Form with their Academic Advisor.  A “W" will be assigned to the course and it will appear on the transcript. The “W” will not be used in the calculation of the GPA, but it will count as credits attempted. Students who have established attendance and withdraw from a 15-week or 1st module course after the fourteenth calendar day of a semester will be charged 100% tuition. Students who establish attendance in a second module course and withdraw from the course will be charged 100% tuition. Excessive withdrawals can impact satisfactory academic progress and jeopardize financial aid eligibility, so students are strongly encouraged to get both academic and financial aid advice before withdrawing from courses.

Course withdrawal deadlines are published in the college catalog and are available on the website on the "Current Students" page. Deadlines will be strictly enforced. Withdrawals are not permitted beyond the deadline. After the deadline, students will receive an earned grade as determined by the instructor.

Failure to attend class is not an appropriate method of withdrawing from a course. Non-attendance does not cancel the financial obligation to pay fees and tuition incurred at the time of registration for classes. Students will remain liable for any outstanding payments of tuition and fees due to the College.

For financial consequences of withdrawing from a course after the start of a semester, refer to the institutional refund policy. Students should check with the Financial Aid Office to determine what financial penalty will be assessed as a result of withdrawing from a course.
