Dropping & Withdrawing
If you are unable to continue your Concurrent Enrollment class, you must follow the proper procedure to drop or withdraw from the class. Failure to do so may result in a failing grade on your permanent college transcript that will affect your SLCC GPA. Failing or withdrawing from a class may also affect your eligibility for financial aid in the future. You should consult with your high school counselor and concurrent enrollment coordinator when you are considering dropping or withdrawing from a concurrent enrollment class.
Dropping a Class
Classes that have been dropped do not show on your SLCC transcript and do not affect your SLCC GPA. The deadline for dropping a class is three weeks after the college semester starts. Check the calendar for exact dates. You are responsible to drop yourself by the deadline through your MySLCC account. Visit the Dropping a Class tutorial for instructions on how to drop your class. Failure to do so could result in a failing grade. Be sure to check your MySLCC account to verify that you have been successfully dropped from the class.
You may appeal to drop a class after the deadline for extenuating circumstances that are out of your control such as unforeseen medical problems or emergencies, change in employment for your parent or guardian which requires you to move mid semester, and other extenuating circumstances. To submit an appeal you will need to work with your high school concurrent enrollment coordinator.
Withdrawing from a Class
Withdrawing from a class does not erase the class from your SLCC transcript. Instead the class will show up as a 'W' on your permanent SLCC transcript. If you withdraw from a class, you are still responsible for paying tuition. Withdrawing does not affect your SLCC GPA, however, you must maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA and successfully complete a minimum of 70% of the cumulative attempted credit hours to be eligible for financial aid at SLCC and many other higher education institutions, following high school graduation. Therefore, if you have only taken a couple of CE classes and you withdraw from one of them, you may not be eligible for financial aid until you take additional classes.
Prior to withdrawing, you should discuss with your high school counselor and SLCC Concurrent Enrollment Academic Advisor how withdrawing from a Concurrent Enrollment course can impact your high school transcript and future college opportunities.
The deadline for withdrawing from a class is published each semester on the Concurrent Enrollment calendar. You can withdraw with instructor’s approval any time after the drop deadline and before the published withdrawal deadline. If you need to withdraw from a class you do so using the CE Withdrawal Form. Be sure to check your MySLCC account to verify that you have been successfully withdrawn from the class.
Repeating a Class
State guidelines do not allow CE students to repeat a Concurrent Enrollment class at the high school. Repeat classes must be taken through Early Enrollment or after high school graduation. You must pay full tuition for any classes taken through the Early Enrollment process or after high school graduation.
