Important: If you enroll in a course, even if you do not ever
attend a class meeting, you are still considered enrolled
until you officially drop the course. If you do not wish to attend a course, or if unforeseen circumstances prevent you from attending, you should drop the course.
To drop a course in which you are officially enrolled:
Please note that you are still responsible for all fees associated with a class after you enroll in it. This is true in some cases even if the class has been dropped. Pay attention to refund deadlines listed in the Academic Calendar to avoid paying for classes you don't plan to attend.
Drop From Courses for Non-attendance
It is your responsibility as a student to officially withdraw from
courses by the deadline date if you do not plan to attend a class. However, the instructor has the right to drop you in the following circumstances:
1. Absence from the first meeting of the class
2. Absence from six hours of class
If you are dropped from a course for non-attendance, you
will receive a grade in accordance with the college grade policy. If the instructor does not choose to drop you from a course, even though you are not attending class, you will most likely receive a failing grade in the course.
If it is not possible for you to drop a course online or
by telephone, you may do so by completing a drop slip at the Admissions & Records Office in SSC-115.
Withdrawal From College
If you have an emergency and find that you must leave school altogether, you should contact the office of the Vice President (AA-203, ext. 4216), and all your instructors, if possible. They will assist you in dropping classes if you are unable to do it yourself. If you leave school and do not officially drop your classes, you most likely will receive failing grades.
