Drops and Withdrawals
Information about EGTC policies on student withdrawals along with student and administrative initiated drops.
Student Initiated Drop
A student may drop a class any time before the census date, which is at 15 percent of the course contact hours. The census date varies depending upon the length of the class. The census date for classes is listed on student schedules. It is the student's responsibility to drop classes by the census date deadline. To drop a class, a student must meet with their Advisor (make an appointment by emailing advisor or contacting the Registration desk). The date of notification for student-initiated drops is the date that the student notifies their Advisor.
Administrative-Initiated Drop (non-payment and non-attendance)
Prior to the census date, students may be dropped from their classes for failure to pay their outstanding balance or for non-attendance. The date of notification for non-attendance will be the date that the Registration office receives official notification from the instructor that the student did not attend the class.
A student can request to be withdrawn from a class any time between 15 percent (census date) and 80 percent (withdrawal date) of the course contact hours. To withdraw from a class, a student must meet with their Advisor (make an appointment by emailing advisor or contacting the Registration desk). No refund is given for a withdrawal. A ‘W’ will show on the transcript but does not affect a student’s grade point average. It is the student's responsibility to withdraw from classes by the withdrawal deadline. Administrative-initiated withdrawals may also be requested by the instructor for poor-attendance prior to 80 percent of the course contact hours.
