First, it is important to understand the difference in a drop and withdraw:


Drop- dropping a course may occur all the way up until the Drop Deadline (noted on the Academic Calendar). This can be done through Self-Service.  In the top menu, go to Registration - Term Check-In.  On the right side of the screen, look in the My Schedule section and find the course you wish to drop. Click the trash can then click the  Drop Course  button that appears. You will see a pop-up telling you "Course successfully Dropped."

Alternatively, you can
 contact the Registrar’s Office via phone or e-mail. 

When dropping a course in Self-Service, a dropped course will not show up on your transcript and the associated tuition charges will be credited back to your student account.

 Drops initiated after the tuition deadline will be charged a $25 Add/Drop Fee per course

Note: After the last day to add classes, the “Drop” feature on Self-Service will be disabled and you will have to contact the Registrar’s Office to be dropped.  

Withdraw- withdrawing from a course occurs when you no longer wish to be enrolled in a course but the Drop Deadline has passed. To withdraw, you must submit the "Withdrawal from Course" form found on Campus Net under “Student Forms and Info” (click the "Withdraw from Course" link). If you withdraw, the professor will give the approval on the requested form as well as a Withdraw Pass or Withdraw Fail. The “WP” or “WF” will appear on your transcript. Furthermore, the student will still be held responsible for tuition; in other words, the associated tuition charges will NOT be credited back to your student account!
