All information will remain confidential.” The deadline to drop without a “W” is the last day of Week 2 (of the semester), which is Sunday, September 9th for Fall 2012. If you must drop a course, drop before the specified deadline for dropping a class without a grade of "W." Dropping after Week 2 will result in a “W” on your transcript. Effective July 1, 2012 students will only have 3 attempts to pass a class. If a student gets a "W" or grade of "D", "F", “I”, or "NP" in a class, that will count as an attempt. A student’s past record of course attempts district wide will also be considered. Therefore, before the end of Week 2 you should carefully consider if you can reasonably manage this course with the other factors in your life (e.g. work, family, course load). If you think you will not be able to complete this course with a C or better, drop by Sunday, September 9th. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to talk to me. You may also see a counselor in the Counseling Center in AD 108.
