Registration

Student Voluntary Withdrawal

Students may add or drop courses during the official registration period as published in the college calendar. These changes will not be reflected on grade reports and transcripts. Students should contact the Registrar’s Office at 336-838-6489 or their academic advisor for assistance. More information about how to drop and/or add a course in Self-Service is available in the FAQ tab.

Students should be aware of the 25% penalty for courses dropped after the semester or term begins. For each course dropped after registration ends and through the published withdrawal date (75% point) for the term, students are responsible for completing a drop form. To access the drop form, click on the E-Forms icon on the Prowler page. After the published withdrawal date (75% point) of the term, students cannot be withdrawn from a course, but will receive the grade they have earned. However, an administrative withdrawal (student receives a “W” grade) may be granted after the seventy-five percent (75%) point for extenuating circumstances (military, court orders, natural disasters, or other extreme circumstances) and must be approved by the division dean and Vice President of Instruction.

Students wishing to withdraw from the college must submit a properly completed drop form. Students are advised to meet with their advisor before dropping a course. The instructor will indicate the last date of attendance on the drop form. The form is then sent to the Registrar’s Office for processing. A drop grade will be given up to the 10% point of the class. A withdrawal grade will be recorded on the grade reports and transcripts after the 10% point and up to the published last date to withdraw (75% point) of the term. Failure to properly file a drop form may result in a failing grade.

Student Involuntary Withdrawal

  • Students who register for a course and do not attend class prior to the ten percent (10%) point will be dropped by the instructor as a “No Show.”
  • Students may be involuntary withdrawn due to excessive absences prior to the published withdrawal date (75% point of the term).
  • Students may be administratively withdrawn from courses for disciplinary reasons subject to the student discipline policies.
  • If a student withdraws from a course that has a required co-requisite, the student will be withdrawn from the co-requisite course unless a waiver has been granted for the student to take the course without being enrolled in the co-requisite course.
  • If a student is required to take a Reinforced Instruction for Student Excellence (RISE) co-requisite course and withdraws from the required RISE co-requisite course, the student will be withdrawn from the gateway course. Example: Student withdraws from ENG-011 Writing and Inquiry Support, then the student will be withdrawn from ENG-111 Writing and Inquiry.
