Additional Notes of Importance

  • You are financially responsible for the courses in which you enroll.
  • Non-attendance of a course is not considered a drop. You are required to officially drop courses you are not planning to attend. If you do not attend your courses(s) and do not drop them, you will receive an FN (failure due to non-attendance) grade and remain financially obligated for the course(s) tuition and fees.
  • Students may drop courses through the 5th business day of the semester, by logging into their eServices account.
  • After the 5th business day, students may withdraw themselves from courses within eServices through the withdraw deadline. See the online course schedule for course specific withdraw deadlines. Withdrawing results in the assignment of a W (withdraw) grade. W grades impact student completion rates but do not impact GPA. 
  • Students who stop attending and do not officially withdraw themselves from courses will be assigned an FW (failure to withdraw) grade. FW grades impact student completion rate and GPA.
  • If you are receiving financial aid and make changes to your credit load, you should contact the Financial Aid Office to determine if the change will affect your aid status.
  • A student may be eligible for a Post Withdrawal Disbursement (PWD) if they academically participated at least one day. If a student fully withdraws prior to receiving their disbursement we will send a notice to the student/parent within 30 days of the determination of the last date of attendance. In some situations we will be able to apply grant to a past due balance without the students consent, but in the case of Direct Loans we will require that the student provides to us in writing an authorization of acceptance.
