Class Drop Process

If you are struggling in any course, please contact your instructor, a counselor or advisor as soon as possible to learn about the many ways NWTC can help you succeed. We are here to help! 

Class Drop Process - Extenuating Circumstance

The Class Drop Grade Appeal form is not needed for the SPRING 2020 term.

This is a decision that has been made in response to the COVID-19 situation. Students are able to drop their courses online via my.NWTC or by contacting us.
 

Students can officially drop classes before 60% of the class has been completed; a Withdraw (W) grade will be posted.

  • If a student drops a class during the refund period, a refund adjustment may be posted to their account. If students receives financial aid, veteran’s funding or agency assistance, it is their responsibility to notify the appropriate office to verify potential repayment of funds.
  • If you are a financial aid recipient or receive funding from other sources, please be advised that changes to your enrollment may affect your current and future eligibility.
    • Please contact the Financial Aid Office or your advisor before making any changes to your enrollment. View the Financial Aid Withdrawal Policy for more information.

After the 60% date of the class, course drops are not allowed; students will get the grade earned. Students wishing to appeal the grade earned after the 60% date of class, must provide documentation of extenuating circumstances. Please read the following policies and procedures below.

  • If the class has been completed and a grade has been assigned, including a NS (no show), the class drop form cannot be used. Please contact Enrollment Services for further assistance.
  • A class drop form must be completed stating the reason for the drop.
  • The instructor is not required to approve the class drop. If the instructor denies the request, it is not necessary to proceed further.
  • If approved by the instructor or Dean/ Associate Dean (whenever the instructor is not present), a grade of “W” will then be assigned. There will be no refund after the 60% class completion.
