For one reason or another, some students will decide to withdraw from the College before the end of the academic term. Leaving without officially withdrawing from the college will result in the student receiving all F’s for his/her course work and will show on the official Status Report of the College as an academic dismissal. Official withdrawal procedures will prevent this from happening, and the following steps must be taken:
Students deciding to leave the college during the semester in progress must officially withdraw. A formal withdrawal from college is not official until the Registrar signs the required form.
If a student withdraws after 30 instructional days, a grade of G (withdrew passing) or H (withdrew failing) will be issued for each course.
Liability is pro-rated for the semester and is based on the official withdrawal date of the student's last date of attendance.
