It is vitally important that students recognize respective normal drop and ‘W’ dates. Students should bookmark this page for quick reference. Copies of these dates will be dispersed to each student during the first 7-10 days of the respective school year as well.

As a reminder:

NORMAL DROP – A normal drop occurs within the first 15 percent of each semester. Students dropping courses on or before this date will not incur any penalties, while also avoiding possible financial remittance to individual school systems. Additionally, the course will not appear on the WCC transcript.

‘W’ DROP – A ‘W’ drop occurs after the first 15 percent and up to the 60 percent point of each semester. Students utilizing a ‘W’ should do so if a low grade is imminent. While a ‘W’ avoids a low grade, the ‘W’ does stay on the WCC transcript. Too many ‘W’s over time will affect progress and financial aid considerations at both WCC and other higher educational institutions. Additionally, students and families may be asked to pay back a portion of funds invested by school divisions.

Students should notify their counselor immediately if they wish to drop either a normal class (taught by a high school credentialed instructor), a SVETN/Elite Learning online course, or an A. Linwood Holton Governor’s School online course.

Students taking WCC taught courses (10-week and 16-week courses) should notify the Coordinator of Dual Enrollment immediately if they wish to drop a course. A normal drop will be eligible for a full refund minus any payment plan fees (if applicable).
