Academic Advisement

 

Dropping or Withdrawing from a Course

  • During the drop/add period, students may drop a course online through the Port of Armstrong. A student who drops a course before the drop/add period is over does not receive a grade in the course and the course does not appear on the academic transcript.
  • A student who wishes to withdraw from a course after the drop/add period is over must obtain a withdrawal notice from Enrollment Services.  The notice must be signed by the instructor of the course and returned by the student to Enrollment Services.
  • A student who withdraws from a course after the drop/add period is over and before the mid-term semester dates will receive a W or WF at the instructor's discretion, and contingent upon whether or not a grade of W or WF has already been awarded for the same course Fall 2012 or after. A student who withdraws from a course after the mid-term semester dates will receive a WF in the course.


 

Withdrawal from University

Many students don’t realize that a formal withdrawal from the university is required when dropping all course work to ensure that the student is eligible to return to Armstrong at a future date. To initiate withdrawing from the university, a student must contact the registrar's office in Victor Hall.
