Students who register and do not attend class, and do not drop or withdraw, risk failing grades and tuition charges. 

Withdrawal from a class can affect a student's academic standing. A grade of "W" (Withdrawal) will be recorded for all classes dropped Tuesday of the first week  through Monday of the fifth week (June 4 - June 24).

Withdrawals can be completed on-line. Simply sign on to OASIS and go to the Register for Classes screen.

Students who are unable to drop or withdraw from classes on-line, may do so in person in the Records Office, 600 S. Michigan, room 611, or by sending a letter to:
