Dropping/Withdraw a Class

Dropping a course means a student wishes to drop an individual course but remains registered in other courses for the current semester. 

Withdrawing means a student wishes to drop ALL courses they are enrolled in for the semester.

Students who will not be attending for the semester and wish to drop ALL courses for the semester, MUST submit a drop/withdraw form to the Registrar's Office in order to officially withdraw from the university for the semester.

STEP 1:  Complete the Form

Beginning with the census date (drop without a grade) as listed above, students will need to submit the drop/withdraw form in order to drop an individual course or withdraw from all courses for the semester.

Step 2: Get Approval

  • Obtain the instructor's signature for each course you wish to drop/withdraw.  The date of last attendance/participation must also be noted on the form where indicated.
  • If student's are utilizing services from the departments below, they will need to obtain a signature from that department before the withdraw form can be processed.  This is to ensure the student is aware of any academic or financial consequences due to their dropping or withdrawing from their classes for the current semester.

  • In person:  University Center, Suite 260D
