Dropping/Withdrawing From a Course

Dropping/Withdrawing From a Course

 Admissions


Dropping a Course (Refund Period)

"Dropping" a course means the course will not appear on the student’s transcript and the student will not be charged for the course.

For Classes that Meet 12 Weeks or Longer: If the withdrawal occurs during the first two weeks of class, tuition and course fees paid or payable will be refunded.

For Classes that Meet Less than 12 Weeks: If the withdrawal occurs during the first week of class, tuition and course fees paid or payable will be refunded.

Withdrawing from a Course

If a student withdraws from a course after the refund (or drop) period, NO TUITION AND FEES WILL BE REFUNDED.  The student will receive a "W" grade on his/her transcript.  "W" grades do not compute into the student’s G.P.A., but they can affect financial aid funding.  Students who receive financial aid should check with Financial Aid before they drop a course.

Please note the last day to withdraw from class each semester.  The dates will be posted around campus.  It is generally the Friday of that week (or the last day of the week) that 75% of the course has been completed.  Specific withdrawal deadlines will be posted for each semester on the following webpage: http://www.dacc.edu/ar/withdraw.

How Do You Drop/Withdraw?

Students can drop/withdraw from a class, depending on the timeframe, in a number of different ways:

  1. Students can drop or withdraw from a course by visiting or calling the Registration Office (Vermilion Hall, 443-8800).
  2. Counselors and Academic Advisors can also drop/withdraw a student (in person or via phone).
  3. Students with access to Web Registration may drop themselves from their classes. The computer will automatically process the drop or withdrawal based on the course start/end dates.

Please remember, it is not the instructors’ responsibility to drop or withdraw you. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE AFTER THE DROP/WITHDRAWAL DEADLINES!
