March 22, 2021 is the last day for students to withdraw with a status indicator of “W” from full semester classes. A “W” is not a grade. A “W” indicates that a course was started but not completed.  Holds placed by the Treasurer’s Office will prohibit students from being able to withdraw in Banner Self-Service. Students should settle the hold with the Treasurer to be able to withdraw online.  Don’t wait until the last minute!

  • Login to MyCharleston and go to the Academic Services tab.
  • Look for the Banner Self-Service channel and click on Banner Self-Service/Student/Registration/Add or Drop Classes
  • Select Spring 2021 as the term and click Submit
  • Locate the course for which you wish to withdraw
  • Under the Action column, click the drop-down menu and select Web Withdraw
  • Click Submit Changes
  • Once you submit a withdrawal request for a course, you will see “Web Withdrawal” next to the course on your course schedule. You will also receive an email confirmation to your college-issued email account from the email address coursenotifications@cofc.edu.  Your instructor will also receive a copy.
