          AFTER THE END OF LATE REGISTRATION, before the DEADLINE

  How to WITHDRAW FROM COLLEGE:

          ANYTIME AFTER REGISTERING, before the DEADLINE
 

 CAUTIONS:

 Failure to drop or withdraw through proper procedures will probably result in a low final grade or F (because all missed work will earn a "zero"). A student should never simply quit attending.

 It is the student's responsibility to ensure that appropriate officials receive notification and that all proper steps are taken. The college will not be responsible if paperwork or messages are not received by the appropriate personnel.

Advisors can be seen by scheduling office appointments. Advisors' email addresses, offices, and phone extensions are listed in the Faculty-Staff Directory.

 Changing a class load will affect future financial assistance. It is the student's responsibility to discuss this issue with the relevant personnel (financial aid, scholarship, WIA, TAA, etc.) before making a decision. Any veteran who withdraws from a class may be required to repay the Veterans Administration a part of the benefits derived up to the point of withdrawal.  

 Changing a class load might affect personal insurance coverage or other business matters outside the college. It is the student's responsibility to be informed.
