Withdrawal from the College
Adding and dropping courses
Students may initiate a formal withdrawal from the College up until the end of classes in a given semester (before finals). To initiate the process, students must go to the Registrar’s Office and complete the appropriate form or send an email from their Massasoit email account requesting the withdrawal. If a student stops attending classes but does not formally withdraw, the student will receive a failure (F) in any course involved. Failures are averaged into the GPA for all students.
Withdrawal from a course(s)
A student may formally withdraw from an individual course through the Friday of the 10th week of the semester. (Contact the Registrar’s Office for the withdrawal period of courses meeting less than 15 weeks.) A grade of “W” will be recorded on the student’s transcript after the official withdrawal procedure has been completed. Students are encouraged to speak to their advisor before withdrawing from any course. Please be advised that ceasing to attend a class may result in an administrative withdrawal or a failing grade.
Students have a period of one week from the first scheduled class meeting to add or drop a course. Students who drop all courses during the first two weeks of classes may be assessed additional fees. For courses dropped after classes begin, students should contact the Registrar’s Office for clarification and to determine the impact on their student record. Financial Aid recipients should contact the Financial Aid Office to determine if a change in enrollment will affect the financial aid award.
