Dropping Courses


If a student's personal circumstances dictate that he or she needs to reduce his/her academic load, that student should confer with his/her advisor for assistance in adjusting the number of courses being taken. A grade of "W" will be given to students who officially withdraw from a course by the deadline noted in the academic calendar. Any drops after this will be made with the approval of the instructor and the Department Chair.

It is the student's responsibility to initiate the action necessary to drop courses under the conditions outlined above. This requires the completion of a petition for course drop form available in the Office of Admission and Registrar on any NCTC Campus or by going to the NCTC website at www.nctc.edu and clicking on Admissions and Registration. Choose the forms online option and follow directions for submission of form. This form must be submitted on or before the last day to drop with a "W" (see Academic Calendar in front of catalog for specific date), and it is not available until after the official date of record. Prior to the official date of record, a student should go to the Office of Admission and Registrar to complete the required forms.

Students who register for courses are required to drop any courses they no longer wish to attend or a final grade will be assigned.

Instructors may drop students from courses for non-attendance by completing a petition for course drop.
