Add, Drop or Withdraw from Courses
Adding a course
You can add courses to your schedule through eServices. For many courses, you have through the 5th day of the term to add. However, courses that do not meet for the entire semester will have a different add deadline than those that meet the entire semester. Refer to the course description in the current course schedule to find the add deadline for your course.
Dropping a course
- When you drop a course, it is removed from your schedule, D2L, and transcript as if you never registered
- Tuition and fees for the course are removed from your bill
Drop deadlines vary by course. For many courses, you have through the 5th day of the semester to drop. However, courses that do not meet for the entire semester will have a different deadline than those that meet the entire semester. Refer to the course description in the current course schedule to find the drop deadline for your course.
It is your responsibility as a student to be aware of the drop deadlines for your courses, and to drop any course you do not plan to attend.
Withdrawing from a course
Once the drop deadline for a course has passed, you may withdraw. When you withdraw from a course, you receive a grade of W on your transcript.
- W grades are not calculated in your MCTC grade point average (GPA)
- W grades are calculated toward your course completion rate for Satisfactory Academic Progress
- Withdrawing from a course does not remove tuition and fees from your bill. Consult your academic advisor if you plan to withdraw from any class, to discuss any financial or academic impact that may result
Withdraw deadlines vary by course. Refer to the course description in the current course schedule to find the withdraw deadline for your course.
It is your responsibility as a student to be aware of the withdraw deadlines for your courses, and to withdraw from any course you are no longer attending.
A student who fails to officially withdraw from their course(s) may be administratively withdrawn from the course at the time that they stop attending/actively participating in the course or if they never attend the course. This policy is also referred to as Last Date of Attendance (LDA). Being administratively withdrawn will have financial aid consequences.
Reference: MCTC Policy 4.16 Last Date of Attendance
If you accidentally withdraw Contact the Student Services Center within 1 business day to discuss the possibility of being reinstated. After reviewing your registration log, a determination will be made by the Registrar. If you are reinstated, D2L access to that course will be available within 24 hours.
