Grade Reporting For Drops/Withdrawals

For courses dropped after classes begin and up to thirty-six (36) days prior to the end of the regular semester, the grade of “W” will be reported.  When a student withdraws from school or from a class or is dropped by the instructor due to attendance within the final thirty-six (36) days of a regular semester, a grade of “W” will be assigned unless the instructor determines that the student’s performance at the point of withdrawal has been unsatisfactory.  If the instructor’s evaluation of the student’s status is unsatisfactory, a grade of “F” may be recorded on the transcript at the end of the semester.  Drop/withdrawal dates from classes during modified College sessions (other than the regular College semester) will be adjusted as appropriate.  Students may contact the Registrar’s Office for additional information.
