Archives For Withdrawal Deadline

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!

Course Withdrawal Date Extension Fall 2020

By Mary C. Bergstrom
Posted on 19 November 2020 | 12:28 pm

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.

 

 

As announced in earlier emails from President Hsu, the College of Charleston is offering an extended course withdrawal period.  Students may withdraw from a full-term or Express II course in Banner Self Service from 12:01 am (EST) April 7, 2020 through 11:59 pm (EST) April 22, 2020.  Instructions are included below.

Students who wish to initiate withdrawal from a course are expected to discuss the decision with their instructor and advisor.  Students who withdraw from a course will receive a status indicator of a “W” for the course.  A “W” is not a grade.  It is a non-punitive status indicator which indicates the course was started but not completed.  Withdrawing from a course, or even all courses, during this extended withdrawal period will not make you eligible for a tuition refund.

Instructions on Withdrawing from a Course in Banner Self-Service April 7-22, 2020
