Students may withdraw from courses before the final 16 class days of the semester by completing a "drop" form and filing it with the Registrar's Office. All courses dropped after the first six class days require the instructor's signature.
No transcript entry will be recorded for full-semester courses which are officially dropped before the end of the first three cycles of the semester. Courses officially withdrawn from after this date, and before the final 16 class days of the semester, will be recorded on the student's transcript with the grade of W. Withdrawal from a course is not possible during the final 16 class days of the semester. Students who discontinue attending class during this time will receive a grade of F for the course.
For courses scheduled for less than a full semester, withdrawal during the first third of the course will result in no record entry; during the second third, a W entry; during the final third, a failure.
