Drop/Withdrawal Consequences

Dropping 

"Dropping" a course means that BEFORE the drop/add deadline shown on the HCC academic calendar (or your course schedule) you took action to remove the course from your schedule. You either:

1. logged into WebAdvisor and dropped the course,

or

2. met with an academic advisor and requested that the course be removed from your schedule.

You will not be charged for this course. The course will not show up on your transcript and is not an attempt for the course. Courses that are not 16 weeks long may have a different drop/add deadline.  Please check your schedule for the drop/add deadline.

Dropping FAQ's 

  • Do I have to pay for the course I dropped? No.
  • Is this considered an attempt for the course? No .
  • Does it impact my financial aid? Maybe. Contact Financial Aid.

Withdrawing

"Withdrawing" from a course means that you registered for the course and it was still on your schedule AFTER the drop/add deadline shown on the HCC academic calendar. You either:

1. logged into WebAdvisor and dropped the course after the drop/add deadline but before the deadline to withdraw with a 'W' grade,

or

2. met with an academic advisor and requested that you be withdrawn from the course after the drop/add period,

or

3. you did not take action to remove the course from your schedule before the drop/add deadline and you never attended the class.

Please Note: 

  • Non-attendance is considered a withdrawal.

You are responsible for full payment of all courses that are considered withdrawals. Your transcript will reflect the course as an attempt with a 'W' grade.
