Drop, Add, and Withdraw

Drop, Add, and Withdraw


Overview of dropping, withdrawing from, and adding classes


You may drop a class through the first 10 percent point of the class, before the end of the "Drop Period." If you drop a class, it won't appear on your transcript. Full or partial refunds are available, depending on when in the "Drop Period" the class is dropped. The deadlines for dropping classes vary depending on the class' schedule.


You can withdraw from a class after the "Drop/Add period," but before the "last day to Withdraw." The deadlines for withdrawing are listed in the Student Handbook. A grade of W will appear on your transcript. A withdrawal will not affect your GPA, but it will affect your overall completion rate, which could also affect your financial aid. Refunds are not available when withdrawing.


You can add a class to your schedule on WebAdvisor or by submitting a "Drop/Add Registration" form to any registration center (either the Bailey Student Services Building on the Asheville campus or the Madison Site Office). A class may only be added prior to the first scheduled meeting or through the first day of class for online classes. After the semester has begun, you may still register for minimester classes that have not yet met.

Tuition Refunds

You're eligible for a 100 percent refund if you drop a class before the official start-date of the course, which you can view in WebAdvisor. You're eligible for a 75 percent refund if you drop a class before the 10 percent point in the term.
