If you are planning on dropping a class, please make sure to do so before Friday, November 19, 2010 to receive a W instead of a failing grade.

By dropping with a W, your academic GPA will not be affected for transferring purposes. However, receiving a lot of Ws does affect your transcripts as well. It is also important to take into consideration that a W grade will affect your financial aid GPA and Satisfactory Academic Progress. You must receive a 2.0 GPA for the semester as well as complete with grades Cs or better 67% of the classes you attempted.

Please contact either Lindsay or Rudolf if you have any questions regarding dropping classes.
