Withdraw from a Course

It is the student’s responsibility to withdraw from a course by the withdraw date.  The withdraw date, is the last day a student may withdraw from a course.  When a student withdraws from a course, the student receives a W grade on the transcript, however the W grade does not factor into the student’s GPA.   Students will find the course withdraw date on the Detailed Student Schedule (in myACC).  Withdraw dates are based total course length and not on the number of individual class meetings.  

Students withdraw from courses via myACC on the Student Tab.   If a student receives financial aid or Veteran’s benefits, consult the Financial Aid Office or Veteran’s Affairs Office prior to withdrawing from a course.  Withdrawing from a course(s) results in reduced completion rate and could have a negative effect on the student’s aid.  Students who do not officially withdraw from a course by the withdraw deadline will be graded by the faculty.

Students cannot withdraw from a course after the withdraw date.  If a student has extenuating circumstances for not being able to withdraw from a course by the withdraw date, the student may complete an Administrative Withdrawal Petition.
