HLC Criterion:



The responsibility for withdrawing from a class rests with the student. The student must abide by the following provisions:

  1. Contact a member of the advisement staff to initiate a drop from class.
  2. After the first day of instruction, the student must take the withdrawal slip, obtain the counselor’s/instructor’s initials, and deliver this form to the Admissions and Advisement Office in order to be officially withdrawn from a class.
  3. The date of withdrawal will be the date the form is received by the Advisor.
  4. Not attending class does not constitute a withdrawal from class. Failure to officially withdraw by the academic penalty date will result in a failing grade for the semester.
  5. Failure to officially withdraw by the financial penalty date will result in financial penalties. This differs from the academic penalty date and the financial aid date.

Note: Please consult the official College Calendar for the final drop dates each semester.
