Drop a Course

It is a student’s responsibility to officially withdraw from a course for which they have registered, whether or not they have ever attended that class. If a student does not attend class and does not officially withdraw, their name will remain on the class roll until the final grading period, they will receive a grade of "F" for the course, and they will be charged for the course. This applies to online and face-to-face classes alike.
