Drop, Withdraw, or Audit a Class

Students may drop classes through the MySLCC portal within the designated drop period. When a class is dropped, students receive a refund or an adjustment to tuition. The class does not show on the transcript.


Students may withdraw from classes after the drop period through the MySLCC portal within the designated withdrawn period. When a class is withdrawn, a “W” is recorded on the transcript. The GPA is not affected, but attempted hours are affected. There is no refund or adjustment to tuition.

Auditing a course allows a student to take a class without the benefit of a grade or credit for a course. A student who audits a course does so for the purposes of self-enrichment and academic exploration.

What does it mean to AUDIT a course?

  • Audits appear as an AU on transcripts and do not count toward your GPA.
  • Tuition and fees will be assessed at the same rate for audited classes as those taken for credit.
  • Students are not required to attend class or take exams in audited courses.
  • Financial aid and veterans' benefits are not available for audited classes.
  • Students may not change their registration status (from audit to credit) after the last day to add courses. No exceptions or grade changes will be permitted after the add deadline. Check the Student Academic Calendar for deadlines.

How to AUDIT a course?

Email registration@slcc.edu with your name, student number, and the specific course you would like changed to audit. The last day to request an audit is also the last day to drop classes.
