Dropping & Withdrawing Courses


Dropping a class is done on or before the official date of record each semester. Please note a drop after the official date of record it is no longer considered a drop but a withdrawal. The official date of record is cited in NCTC's Academic Calendar.

To drop a course a student can:

  • Go to MyNCTC and drop the course
  • Visit the Admissions/Registrar's Office in person to fill out a drop form
  • Meet with an advisor and fill out a drop form

Remedial courses cannot be dropped online. A student must come to the Admissions/Registrar's Office in person to drop a remedial course.

If a student receives financial aid, they should contact that department before withdrawing.

All withdrawals must be processed online, in person, faxed and/or postmarked on or before the official date of record. Requests should 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.

Online Requests

If the Admissions/Registrar's Office should receive the form via e-mail, the form will be processed within 24 hours and the student should receive an email confirmation that the withdrawal has been processed. If the student does not receive an email, it is the student's responsibility to contact the Admission's office for confirmation. The student is responsible for verifying that the email was received by the Admissions/Registrar's Office prior to the last day to withdrawal.

It is the student's responsibility to officially withdraw from any class they do not wish to attend. Students who stop attending classes and who do not officially withdrawal may be assigned a final grade of "F". 

Dual Credit Students

Dual Credit students must fill out the Petition to Withdraw for Dual Credit students form and submit it to the Admissions office.
