Withdrawal from a Course Process

Students can officially withdraw from class/classes if they meet two conditions:

  1. The deadline to withdraw has not yet passed (Please review the Academic Calendar withdrawal deadline)
  2. If there is at least one class remaining on their schedule*. Students cannot withdraw from all classes through this process.

Please note that if you are trying to withdraw from your entire schedule or the only class on your schedule, Banner will not allow you to withdraw from all courses online. (*If a student is requesting a Full Withdrawal from the College, they must complete the  Complete Withdrawal from the College and submit it to their Academic Advisor for processing.)

NOTE:  The Registrar’s Office reserves the right to reinstate any classes withdrawn through this process if a student fails to contact the appropriate advisor/office prior to withdrawing from classes.
