The deadline for students to withdraw from one or more full term or Express II courses has been be extended.  Students may withdraw between 8:00 am (EST) November 20, 2020 and 11:59 pm (EST) December 7, 2020.  The course withdrawal extension applies only to students enrolled in College of Charleston courses and does not apply to Charleston Bridge students.

In making the decision to withdraw from a course, it is important for students to consult with their instructor and/or advisor and to consider possible financial aid implications.  All decisions are final.

Express II and Full-Term Courses

Students who wish to withdraw from an Express II or full-term course should use Banner Self Service.

  • 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 Fall 2020 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.

Express I Courses

Students will not be able to use Banner Self Service to withdraw from Express I courses because they have already been graded.  Students who wish to withdraw from an Express I course should email their withdrawal request to grades@cofc.edu prior to the deadline.  The email must come from your college-issued email account and include:

  • Name
  • CWID
  • Course Acronym and Number
  • Name of Course

How Does a Course Withdrawal Appear on My Transcript?

When a student withdraws from a class, the “W” status indicator will appear on the transcript to indicate that a course was started but not completed.  A “W” is not a grade and does not impact the grade point average (GPA).

Refunds

Withdrawing from a course, or even all courses, during this extended withdrawal period will not make students eligible for a tuition refund.

 

 

Just a quick reminder that the last day to withdraw “W” from full semester courses is Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at 11:59 pm (EST).  Students may withdraw from a course in Banner Self Service in MyCharleston (which opens at 8:00 am (EST) each day).  Instructions for withdrawing can be found on the Help and Training tab in MyCharleston on the Office of the Registrar Student Resources channel.

For all course withdrawals, you will receive an email confirmation to your college-issued email account from the email address coursenotifications@cofc.edu.  Your instructor will also receive a copy.

A withdrawal “W” is not a grade. A “W” indicates that a course was started but not completed.  If you are unsure about withdrawing from a course, please consult with your instructor and/or advisor.

Students should make sure to resolve any registration holds on their record prior to the last day to withdraw.  A hold can prevent you from being able to withdraw from a class.  To find out if you have a hold, login to MyCharleston.  Click on the Academic Services tab and look for the Registration Tools channel.  Click on Registration status.  Only the department who placed the hold can remove the hold from your account.   Visit this webpage for more information on hold types:  https://registrar.cofc.edu/courses/registration-holds-and-required-verifications.php

Just a quick reminder that today is the last day to withdraw from a full-term or Express II course in Banner Self Service.
