Withdrawals

Withdrawals

The last day to withdraw from a regularly scheduled semester class is Friday of the 12th week of the semester. A withdrawal form must be completed in its entirety and the completed form is then submitted to the Enrollment, Financial and Career Services division for processing. Withdrawal from the College consists of withdrawing from all enrolled courses. Students who withdraw from all courses cease to be LCCC students for the semester from which they have withdrawn.

A student who stops attending any class without following the withdrawal procedure continues to be enrolled with the exception of those students who have been issued a Failure Administrative Withdrawal (FAW) grade. For withdrawn classes, a grade will be assigned and no refund of instructional or of any other fees will be considered.

Withdrawals from credit courses offered differently than the traditional semester calendar will be calculated proportionately to and consistent with institutional policy.

Administrative Withdrawal

Students with documented, extenuating circumstances may be eligible for an administrative withdrawal by the dean of the division in which the course or courses are taught. The request for an administrative withdrawal must be made in writing to the dean of the division with any supporting documentation. This must occur before the last official day of the semester. After the last official day of the semester, the Enrollment, Financial and Career Services division dean and/or the associate registrar will review withdrawal requests.

Failure Administrative Withdrawal (FAW)

Students are expected to be “actively pursuing course completion” and participating In the class throughout the semester. Through the midterm grade process, faculty may initiate a Failure Administrative Withdrawal grade of FAW for those students who are not actively participating in the course and who are not providing evidence of course completion. “Active pursuit of course completion” is a combination of attendance, participation, completion of assignments and other activities outlined In the course syllabus. Please note: The “pursuit” measure only applies to effort, not grades – so a student who is showing up and taking tests, but failing them, would not receive an FAW grade and would remain in the class.

Students who receive the FAW grade will have failed the course, owe the course tuition and fees and be administratively withdrawn from the course once midterm grades are posted. The FAW grade will be reflected on the student’s official LCCC transcript and will be calculated as an F grade with 0.00 credit point per semester hour. Students who believe they have received the FAW grade in error should contact the course instructor. Students have the right to appeal all grades and details on the appeal process can be found in Grade and Course Expectation and Appeals section of the LCCC Academic Requirements.
