Withdrawing from Classes
Withdrawing before Midterm
You may withdraw from classes online via your Banner Student Web account through midterm. Please note that if you are trying to withdraw from your entire schedule or the only class on your schedule, you will need to come to the Office of Registration and Records for assistance or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. There are no refunds for withdrawing from classes after the third day of the semester. To determine how withdrawing from a class will affect your Financial Aid Status, please contact the Financial Aid Office, (706) 355-5009, PRIOR TO dropping or withdrawing from the class.
Withdrawing after Midterm
In order to withdraw from classes after the midpoint, students must come to the Office of Registration and Records and obtain a withdrawal form. Students must take the withdrawal form to their instructors to obtain their signatures and a grade of WP (withdrawal passing) or WF (withdrawal failing). The form must then be returned before the last day of class to the Office of Registration and Records in Athens or Student Development Services in Elberton, Monroe, or Greensboro.
Withdrawing from Online Classes
To withdraw from online classes after midterm, students must e-mail their instructors through the e-mail programs/addresses they normally use to participate in their online courses to notify instructors that they want to withdraw. Instructors will assign grades of either WP or WF by notifying students through their ANGEL accounts of the assigned grade and forwarding the students' original e-mails requesting the withdrawal and information on the students' grades to the director of registration and records. Students who are taking both face-to-face and online courses during an academic term must come into the Office of Registration and Records and complete a withdrawal form in person.
