WITHDRAWAL INFORMATION

Virtual Students

(students outside of Pitt County who do not have access to the physical campus)

Please contact The Office of Admissions & Records at (252) 493-7232.

Official Withdrawal

During the first twelve weeks of a semester, a student may withdraw from standard 16-week courses without penalty. (See college calendar for applicable date each semester.) For all courses other than standard 16-week courses, the 75% point of the class will be the official withdrawal deadline. For standard 16-week courses, no official withdrawals will be permitted during the last four (4) weeks of any semester. For all courses other than standard 16-week courses, no official withdrawals will be permitted during the last 25% of the class. Any exceptions to this policy must be agreed upon by both the student's curricular division director and the vice president of student development. Official withdrawals do not count as hours attempted.

Students applying for an official withdrawal during the official withdrawal period must use the following procedure:

  1. Obtain a withdrawal card from a counselor or the Office of the Registrar,
  2. Complete and have advisor sign card,
  3. Have card signed by financial aid and/or veteran affairs officer if receiving aid, and
  4. Submit completed card to the Office of the Registrar.

After the deadline for official withdrawal, the student should see his/her curricular division director.
Students who officially withdraw from courses will not receive grades for those courses. Only the course(s) for which they registered and the official withdrawal designation will appear on the transcript. For more information, see the counselors or the Office of the Registrar.

Unofficial Withdrawal

An unofficial withdrawal from one or more classes is given to students who leave school or stop attending classes without qualifying for or following procedures for official withdrawal status. This includes students dropped for excessive absences (see Attendance) and not reinstated. Unofficial withdrawals count as hours attempted with quality points of "0" in determining the grade point average (GPA). Students who leave school without officially withdrawing will lower their GPA and jeopardize future readmission to the College. For more information see the counselors or the Office of the Registrar.

VETERANS NOTE: Any course for which an unofficial withdrawal or an "I" (Incomplete) is received may not be retaken for pay purposes under the Title 38, U.S. Code as amended by Public Law 93-508.
