How Do I drop a course after the drop/add period has ended?
Students who want to withdraw from a course, need to pick up a drop/add form from the Registrar’s Office, get the advisor’s signature, and then return the form the Registrar’s Office. The instructor will be electronically notified that the student has dropped the course and will assign either a WP or WF.
What is the difference between a WP and WF?
A grade of “WP” is awarded, if the student at the time they withdraw from a course is passing it. The “WP” is non-punitive, which means that it will not impact the GPA or count as one of the course repeats. A grade of “WF” is awarded, if the student at the time they withdraw from a course is failing it. The “WF” is punitive, which means that it counts as one of the repeats and the “WF” is counted like a grade of “F” towards the semester and cumulative GPA. Keep in mind that students are only allowed a total of four WP grades. Students, who have reached their allowed number of WPs, will automatically receive a WF.
