A dropped course does not appear on your transcript and does not impact your academic standing. Tuition and fee charges are reversed/refunded for a course that is dropped.
Withdraw: A course withdrawal is allowed after the add/drop period has ended and through approximately 80% of the term/course. A withdrawal is recorded on your transcript as a W and does impact academic standing.
Total Withdraw: Tuition and fee refunds are issued only for a total withdrawal within the refund period (see schedule below). A total withdrawal is a withdrawal from all courses for the term. No refunds are issued for partial withdraws.
