Dropping a Course
You may modify your schedule by dropping a 15-week course during the first week of a major semester, Fall or Spring; or, the first three days of a 7-week subsession or any of the Summer sessions. When you drop a class, it must be done by the published deadline. It can be done in most cases via FalconNet Online Registration. In certain instances, you will need permission to drop from a class (i.e. if the course is a pre-requisite to other courses you have scheduled, if it is a required college preparatory course, etc.). If you follow the drop process appropriately, you will receive a refund for the course in the mail approximately 14 days from the drop. If you add another course at the time of the drop and it is equal value in credits (for example, dropping a 3-credit course and adding a different 3-credit course), no refund will take place. The credit will be applied towards the newly added course. You are responsible for any additional costs if courses added amount to more than the original credit load. Failure to pay for additional costs may result in being purged from your total class schedule.
Withdrawal from a Course
Dropping a class after the drop/add period is considered a withdrawal. You may withdraw from a course after the add/drop period, but you will not be eligible for a tuition refund and will receive a “W” grade for the course. If you wish to withdraw from a course, you can use your Falconet account until the last date to withdraw. You will not be withdrawn from a class simply because you stop attending it. The withdrawal deadline date is published in the College Academic Calendar. Students who remain enrolled in courses after the withdrawal date will be assigned a final grade for the course from the faculty member. Withdrawals are counted as an attempt for a course, refer to information below.
Students who no longer want to attend class:
Must withdraw by the deadline for the semester (published in the academic calendar).
Students are permitted a maximum of two withdrawals per course. Upon the third attempt, students will not be permitted to withdraw and will receive a grade other than "W" for that course.
Students will be assessed 100 percent of the full cost of instruction (the out-of-state tuition rate) on the third attempt unless the college grants a one-time exception to the student due to extenuating circumstances or financial hardship. Application forms for an appeal are available at the Question & Answer Center/Enrollment Services department on any campus location or online through the Registration website.
- Students are permitted to appeal to take a course a fourth time if major extenuating circumstances occurred during the third attempt. Students will be assessed the full cost of instruction on the fourth attempt. There is no appeal to reduce the full-cost assessment on the fourth attempt. All grades from the third and subsequent attempts will be calculated in the student's grade point average. A fifth attempt is not allowed under any circumstances.
