    How Do I Drop My Course(s)?

    To drop a class or withdraw from the college, you must follow the prescribed procedure. It is your responsibility as a student to drop or withdraw from a course. Failure to do so will result in your receiving a performance grade, often a grade of "F". You also must have withdrawal advising before you will be allowed to drop a course after the official day of record.
    You can drop or withdraw from classes in three ways:

    1. Talk to the professor(s) of your class(es). He/she will help you explore alternatives to dropping the course(s). He/she will also assist you in requesting the drop and making certain what is the correct reason for the drop, if a drop is still desired.
    2. See a counselor or advisor in the counseling office at your college. He/she will help you explore alternatives to dropping the course(s). He/she will also assist you in requesting the drop and making certain what is the correct reason for the drop, if a drop is still desired.
    3. Go through the online withdrawal advising process (coming soon), which will walk you through the advising process online exploring alternatives to dropping and assisting you in documenting the correct reason for your drop, if still desired.

    A drop/withdrawal request by any of the means above must be submitted to the Admissions/Registrar's Office by the official drop/withdrawal deadline as indicated on the Academic Calendar and the current class schedule. No drop or withdrawal requests are accepted by telephone.

    See the
    Refund Policy for possible refund eligibility. Students who drop or withdraw should be aware of the course Repeat Policy. You may also wish to review the new Texas law, the 6 Drop Rule, as well as the related FAQ's on Facts on Dropping Classes.
