Administrative Withdrawal

Administrative Withdrawal

It is the policy of the College that a student will be administratively withdrawn from a course(s) due to lack of attendance in a seated class or non-participation in online classes or for other breaches of academic policy.  Students should be aware that administrative withdrawal for lack of attendance or nonparticipation may reduce the amount of financial aid they receive, delay their graduation, or necessitate repayment of aid already received and does not relieve their obligation to pay all tuition and fees due to the college.  Questions regarding administrative withdraw should be directed to your instructor(s).
