Find out how to drop a course from your schedule and if there is an impact on your academic record.
You can drop a full-semester course from your schedule through the second week of classes in CampS without that course showing up on your record.
Note: This timeline is adjusted for course that are not a full semester long (i.e. summer or winterim courses), you can find withdraw periods for these in CampS.
If you would like to drop a class after the second week of the semester, you will have to follow the steps to withdraw from a class.
Drop a winterim class
You can drop winterim courses at any point before the term begins without consequences. Due to the shorter length of courses, dropping or withdrawing from all winterim courses after the term begins may result in a “W” on your record, as well as a reduction in your refund or possible financial aid repayments. Make sure to talk to an advisor within ARCC before dropping courses after the winterim session begins.
Dropping a class before winterim term begins
You can drop one or each of your courses in CampS. To completely withdraw from winterim courses, you just need to successfully drop each of your courses. No other action is required to withdraw from the term.
Dropping a class after the winterim term begins
Complete the winterim drop/withdrawal eform. Make sure to read and understand the Statement of Responsibility and Financial aid Recipients sections of the eform.
Blugold Central will send you an email once your request has been processed. We will then also notify you of any account balance or financial aid repayment you are responsible for.
Drop a summer session class
You can drop summer session courses at any point before the term begins without consequences. Due to the shorter length of courses, dropping or withdrawing from all summer courses after the term begins may result in a “W” on your record, as well as a reduction in your refund or possible financial aid repayments as these deadlines are calculated based on the class length. Make sure to talk to an advisor within ARCC before dropping courses and before the summer session begins. Your date of withdrawal can have an impact on tuition/fee charges, possible financial aid repayments owed to the institution, and whether a "W" grade will be assigned to your academic record.
