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!
