Dropping/Withdrawing From Courses

Dropping/Withdrawing From Courses

Welcome to Luna Community College

Previous Page

Students are officially dropped/withdrawn from courses by one of two procedures:

PARTIAL DROP/WITHDRAWAL - Some Courses

Students may drop/withdraw from courses through the end of the drop and/or withdrawal period as specified in the academic calendar. Students wishing to drop/withdraw from some but not all courses may either complete the paper Schedule Change form or drop/withdraw from courses online. High school students must complete the Schedule Change form with LCC’s Concurrent Enrollment/Dual-Credit Office. All drops/withdrawals, whether paper or electronic, must be processed by the LCC Office of the Registrar or online by published deadlines. The actual date the transaction is processed will determine whether the record is processed as a drop or withdrawal. In general, courses that are processed as a drop do not appear on the student’s transcript whereas courses that are processed as a withdrawal will appear on the student’s transcript as a “W”. Students who are unable to complete the process in person or online, may download a form from LCC’s web site and fax in their request to 505.454.5348. For transactions processed in person, the Office of the Registrar will provide, upon request, a signed copy receipt for any courses using the Schedule Change form.

COMPLETE WITHDRAWAL - All Courses

Students may completely drop/withdraw from all courses through the end of the drop and/or withdrawal period as specified in the academic calendar. Students wishing to completely drop/withdraw from all courses may either submit the paper Complete Withdrawal form or drop/withdraw from all courses online. High school students must complete the Complete Withdrawal form with LCC’s Concurrent Enrollment/Dual-Credit Office. All complete drops/withdrawals, whether paper or electronic, must be processed by the LCC Office of the Registrar or online by published deadlines. The actual date the transaction is processed will determine whether the record is processed as a drop or withdrawal. In general, courses that are processed as a drop do not appear on the student’s transcript whereas courses that are processed as a withdrawal will appear on the student’s transcript as a “W”. Students who are unable to complete the process in person or online, may download a form from LCC’s web site and fax in their request to 505.454.5348. For transactions processed in person, the Office of the Registrar will provide, upon request, a signed copy receipt for any courses using the Complete Withdrawal form.

Students are encouraged to discuss any intention to drop or withdraw from classes with their academic advisor. If a student wishes to reverse a decision to withdraw after the Complete Withdrawal form or online transaction has been processed, the student must complete a Petition for Course Reinstatement for each course and submit the form to the Office of the Registrar for processing.

Students who stop attending classes in the middle of a term and do not officially drop/withdraw, run the risk of earning failing grades at the end of the term. Students wishing to add, drop or withdraw from courses in person may submit the necessary forms to the Office of the Registrar at the Las Vegas Main Campus, Santa Rosa Satellite, Springer Satellite or the Mora Office.
