Withdrawal Information

Distance Students

(students outside of Pitt County are not able to come to the physical campus)

Please contact Crystal Burnett, Counselor at cburnett@email.pittcc.edu, or 252-493-7409 for assistance with completing an official withdrawal.

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 curriculum Division Dean and the Vice President of Student Development. Official withdrawals do not count as hours attempted.

Students considering an official withdrawal during the official withdrawal period MUST meet with a PCC Counselor in the Counseling Services office in Goess 120. Students should request an appointment to meet with a PCC Counselor by contacting the Counseling Services office by email at pcccounseling@email.pittcc.edu, or by calling 252-493-7245. The PCC Counselor will assist the student with completing the official withdrawal form if the decision is made to officially withdraw.

NOTE: All students enrolled in a Construction & Industrial Technology program of study must meet with their assigned faculty advisor to obtain an official withdrawal form and to acquire the advisor's signature on the form prior to making an appointment with a PCC Counselor.

EXCEPTION: All students enrolled in a Health Sciences program of study must meet with their assigned faculty advisor to complete the official withdrawal process.

After the deadline for official withdrawal, the student should see his/her curriculum Division Dean. 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, contact 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 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.
