Students wishing to withdraw from all classes must contact the Dean of Student’s Office.

A “W” grade is counted in a student’s credits attempted, but will not count against a student’s G.P.A.

In addition to the last day to withdraw from a class with a “W,” Oct. 31 is also the start of registration for winter semester classes.

Registration is done on a staggered basis with students having more earned credits registering first.

Freshmen and sophomores are encouraged to meet with their academic advisors before registering for classes.

Class registration takes place online on the server.
