Last day to drop without a “W” is September 16, 2011 (Friday, Week 3)

When a student drops a class between 1st and 3rd weeks, nothing appears on their transcripts. When a student drops a class between 4th and 8th weeks, a withdraw grade (W) appears on their transcripts. This indicates that the student took the class for a significant amount of time (more than 3 weeks) and then decided to drop the class. One W on a transcript is not a big deal (check with Financial Aid to see a W grade will affect your financial aid, scholarships, or loans). More than a couple of Ws will start to indicate to a potential employer that a student cannot complete what they set out to do. All first-year students must meet with their academic advisor to drop a class after orientation. All students must go to the Student Service Center to drop classes through the Friday of 8th Week.
