First, it is important to understand the difference in a drop and withdraw:

 

Drop- dropping a course may occur all the way up until the Drop Deadline (noted on the Academic Calendar). This can be done through Self-Service (register tab traditional courses click the term check the box next to the course you want to drop hit next and finalize the process),

OR by contacting the Registrar’s Office via phone or e-mail. To drop a course in Self-Service, A dropped course will not show up on your transcript and all tuition payments are able to be refunded.

 

Withdraw- withdrawing from a course occurs when you no longer wish to be enrolled in a course but the Drop Deadline has passed. To withdraw, you must submit the Withdraw from a Single Course form found here. If you withdraw, the professor will give their approval on the requested form as well as a Withdraw Pass or Withdraw Fail. The “WP” or “WF” will appear on your transcript. Furthermore, the student will still be held responsible for tuition; in other words, tuition is not refunded!
