How to Withdraw from a Course or all Courses
Online Withdrawals with a grade of "W" will be accepted January 29th, 2013 through April 13th, 2013. Please visit the how to drop a course page if it is before January 29th.
ATTENTION DEVELOPMENTAL STUDENTS:
Developmental courses may NOT be withdrawn online.
Students must complete a withdraw form ON CAMPUS for those courses.
To withdraw from a course (after the official date of record) with a grade of ‘W’, students will need to complete the Petition for Course Withdrawal online. IF YOU RECEIVE FINANCIAL AID PLEASE CONTACT THAT DEPARTMENT BEFORE YOU WITHDRAW FROM CLASSES. THIS MAY CHANGE YOUR FINANCIAL AID STATUS. PLEASE CONTACT THE FINANCIAL AID DEPARTMENT FOR MORE INFORMATION.
A grade of "W" will be given to students who officially withdraw from a course.
All withdrawals must be processed online, in person, faxed and/or postmarked on or before April 13th, 2013. Since this is a Saturday and offices will be closed, you may fax and/or mail your request by this date.
Requests need to include student ID number, full name, course information (please include course ID and section number-example ENGL1301 123), and a signature. If the request is not signed or does not include all information, it may not be processed.
WANT TO WITHDRAW? THINK TWICE, GET ADVICE!
Before you withdraw from any class, contact an advisor in the Counseling and Testing Center to talk about your options! If you were new to college starting in 2007 or later, you are only allowed SIX withdrawals over your entire college career, so choose wisely! Also, if you receive any type of Financial Aid, withdrawing from a class could impact your eligibility to receive Financial Aid in future semesters. Withdrawing from a College Preparatory class may impact your enrollment in other classes, so check with an advisor before making any decisions.
For Counseling Center locations and staff contact information, visit www.nctc.edu/counselingstaff.
If you still need to withdraw after contacting an advisor, follow these steps:
- 1. Log in to MyNCTC (my.nctc.edu).
If you need your log-in information contact the Admissions Office
- 2. Click on the Students tab. Select the Registration option, then click on Schedule. Print or write down the course ID and the section number (example-ENGL1301 123) of the class(es) for withdrawal.
- 3. Click on the Admissions tab. On the left-hand side, click on the Course Withdrawal link. Read all the information carefully, and then click on Begin Petition for Course Withdrawal at the bottom.
- 4, Fill out the entire form and click Submit.
Please allow 24 hours for the form to be processed. When you check your schedule on MyNCTC, the class will still be listed, but the credit hours will show as “0” and the grade will be a “W” when the withdrawal is complete.

Beginning with this Fall 2007 academic term, and applying to students who enrolled in higher education for the first time during the Fall 2007 academic term or any term subsequent to the Fall 2007 term, an institution of higher education may not permit an undergraduate student to drop a total of more that six courses, including any course a transfer student has dropped at another institution of higher education as defined for this section, unless:
1. The institution has adopted a policy under which the maximum number of courses a student is permitted to drop is less than six; or
2. The student can show good cause for dropping more than that number, including but not limited to showing of:
- A severe illness or other debilitating condition that affects the students ability to satisfactorily complete the course;
- The student's responsibility for the care of a sick, injured, or needy person if the provision of that care affects the student's ability to satisfactorily complete the course;
- The death of a person who is considered to be a member of the student's family or who is otherwise considered to have a sufficiently close relationship to the student that the person's death is considered to be a showing of good cause;
- The active duty service as a member of the Texas National Guard or the Armed Forces of the United States of either the student, or a person who is considered to be a member of the student's family or is otherwise considered to have a sufficiently close relationship to the student that the person's active military service is considered to be a showing of good cause;
- The change of the students work schedule that is beyond the control of the student, and that affects the student's ability to satisfactorily complete the course; or
- Other good cause as determined by the institution of higher education
