Instructions for how students can drop a class
Overview of Dropping a Class
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. Each class has its own drop and withdrawal deadlines, depending on the start and end dates of the class. After the deadline has passed, you will still be able to withdraw from a class.
How to Drop a Class
There are three different ways officially to drop a class without academic penalty:
You can drop a class on WebAdvisor, which can be done any time before the first class period. After logging in to WebAdvisor, select "Curriculum Students" and then "Register and Drop Sections." Check the drop box under "Current Registrations" next to the class you want to drop, and then "Submit." You can then check on "My Class Schedule" in WebAdvisor to be sure the class has been dropped.
After the first day of the semester, you may still use WebAdvisor, or you may drop the class in person. If you drop the class in person, you'll need to submit a Drop/Add Registration form to any registration center (either the Bailey Student Services Building on the Asheville campus or the Madison Site Office).
You can speak with your program advisor or an academic advisor, who can process the drop for you.
Dropping for Distance Students
If you don't live in the Asheville area and you need assistance with dropping a class, please contact our Distance Advisor by emailing email@example.com.
Refunds for Dropped Classes
You'll receive a 100 percent refund if you drop the class before the published start date of the class (as listed in WebAdvisor). The start date of the class is not necessarily the first day of class. For example, a Tuesday/Thursday class may have a start date of Monday, August 14, but the first day of class would be Tuesday, August 15. To get a 100 percent refund, a student would need to drop the class before the August 14 published start date.
A 75 percent refund will be made if you officially drop the class before the official 10 percent point of the term. Insurance, technology, and student activity fees are not refundable. A 75 percent refund will be made for a class dropped on the beginning date through the 10 percent point of the class.
