Course Withdraw

Course withdrawals apply to you if the course drop deadline has passed and you are unable to finish a course but you are still attending other courses with this college. If you intend to withdraw from all of your courses for the semester, read the instructions for College Withdrawal. Withdrawing from a course means that you are assigning yourself a grade of “W”. You pay full tuition and fees for course withdrawals.

RCTC strongly recommends that you work with your teacher, advisor, or counselor prior to withdrawing from a course to achieve the best possible outcomes for your individual circumstances. Also you must notify the following offices if you are receiving benefits from them:

Course withdrawals impact your academic standing, as these courses count in the credits attempted but not successfully completed totals.

Course Withdrawal Period:
The course withdraw period begins when the drop period ends and continues until the course is 75% expired (as determined by the duration of the course in class hours and/or begin and end dates).
