After the Add/Drop period is over, students wishing to stop attending or to avoid an undesired grade for the course may withdraw. Such must be done officially on a student’s portal or in person at Enrollment Services. Withdrawal results in a grade of “W” which does not affect a student’s grade point average. Billing charges for the withdrawal(s) remain in place and the course appears on permanent transcripts. Students choosing to withdraw who are receiving financial aid should be aware financial aid may be removed for withdrawal from a course or courses; students reported for not attending classes may also be subject to an award adjustment. If remaining aid is less than their bill, the student is responsible for ensuring any bill balance is paid. Deadlines for withdrawal are posted each academic period.
