Dropping a Class
A student who wishes to drop a traditional day class may do so during the first week of classes (drop/add week) and no grade will be assigned. The drop/add for online courses is three days from the beginning of class. From the second week or third day respectively, through the Friday after midterms (by 5:00 pm EST of the 5th week of classes for Online and Evening Programs and Activity courses), the student may withdraw with a grade of "W" (withdraw) which will have no impact on the student's grade point average (GPA). After this point, through the last day of classes, a student may withdraw from a class and a grade of “WP” (withdraw passing) or “WF” (withdraw failing) unless a final grade has been assigned. The student bears full responsibility for all courses on his or her registration schedule. Failure to file a withdrawal form with the Registrar and/or failure to complete a course may result in a grade of “F.” Students forced by illness or other hardship to drop a class after the deadline may petition for a grade of “WP” from the Provost.
A student in the Day Campus Program who wishes to drop or withdraw from a class may obtain a Course Withdrawal Form from the Registrar’s Office and take it to the instructor and the advisor for approval. In the Online and Evening Program, a student wishing to drop or withdraw (after the drop/add period) from a course must contact the professor and submit a withdrawal form (LC Portal) to the Registrar's office. Failure to do so will result in a grade of F. Day students may not withdraw from an Online course in terms 1, 2, 5, or 6 after the Day Campus Program drop/add period without the written approval of the Provost.
