A course dropped through the 14th class day is not entered on a student's record. A grade of W (withdrawn) is entered for each course dropped after the 14th class day. After the 53rd class day, courses may not be dropped. See the current Academic Calendar for exact dates for each semester and click here for the withdrawal form.

- Students who fail to resign by the published final date for such action will be retained on the class rolls even though they may be absent for the remainder of the semester and be graded as if they were in attendance. Failure to attend class does not constitute a resignation.
