Withdrawal from the Institution

Students wishing to withdraw from the College should contact the Counseling Office. The student must complete a “Withdrawal Form” which must be verified by the advisor and other appropriate college personnel. Compliance with this procedure protects the student’s privileges of re-admission and credit transfer to another institution. Any student failing to attend class regularly without formal withdrawal, does so at the risk of receiving a failing grade.  Withdrawal grades will be assigned according to academic regulations when the student has not met the attendance requirements.

Administrative Withdrawal

If a student has been consistently absent on individual class rolls and the Counselors verify that the student has had a change in enrollment status, the student is asked to complete an appropriate Withdrawal Form. If students do not follow up immediately, Counselors are authorized to complete the withdrawal process which notifies appropriate offices (Financial Aid, Business Office and Admissions and Records) to process the students exit documents.
