‘W’ deadline April 12

Staff Writer

Friday, April 12, is the final day to withdraw from class with a “W.” To withdraw from a class students must go to the Registrar’s Office in the Devall Student Center or visit the KC-Longview office and fill out a drop request form. The Registrar’s Office closes at 3:45 p.m., and the KC-Longview Office closes at 2:30 p.m. today. To drop out of all classes, students must fill out a withdraw  notice.

Students must show photo ID when submitting all drops requests. Drop requests and withdrawal notices must be turned into the Registrar’s Office before the deadline; no requests will be taken after the deadline.

Dropping courses may affect financial aid status, and a student may be required to repay a portion of financial aid.

Senate Bill 1231, passed by the Texas Legislature in may 2007, limits Texas public education students to six drops in their public college education career.

Students taking a course for the third time must pay an additional $70 per credit hour.

“Withdrawing does not affect your grade point average. It is always better to withdraw than fail,” said Pam Gatton, director of counseling.
