Dropping a Course and Withdrawal

The drop period  for full semester courses ends on the first Sunday following the beginning of the term. A dropped course is not reflected on the student’s transcript. The withdrawal period then begins and lasts through 75% of the course. Withdrawal means the student attempted the course but did not complete any credit; the grade of W will appear on the student’s transcript.  Students are responsible for all tuition and fees associated with withdrawn courses.  No course may be withdrawn from after 75% of the course has elapsed. Students will be issued a grade after this deadline. Drop and Withdraw deadlines for non-standard courses can be found on the student’s schedule in MyCSI.

In order to withdraw from one or more courses, a completed Add/Drop/Withdraw form is required, which can be found in MyCSI or at the Office of the Registrar. Students withdrawing from all credited courses must receive a Financial Aid signature prior to submitting the form to the Office of the Registrar or any off-campus center.

W grades can have a number of negative consequences, including negatively impacting students’ eligibility for Federal Financial Aid. Ws on transcripts can also raise questions by transfer institutions and even prospective employers. Students should carefully consider the consequences of Ws before withdrawing from courses.
