Dropping Classes

Dropping or withdrawing from a course is not an automatic process. It is the student's responsibility to drop the classes they are not attending. (It is NOT the faculty member's responsibility to drop you-It is your responsibility as an enrolled student.) If you do not drop a class, you will be charged for it, and you could receive an "F" grade that will remain on your permanent record.  Please follow this link to view the Attendance Policy.
