Non-attendance in class does not automatically withdraw students from a course. To withdraw officially after the Add/Drop period, students must contact Academic Services at email@example.com. Withdrawing from a course means the course remains on the transcript, but the student is awarded a "W" instead of a grade.
If a student withdraws from a required course, s/he must repeat the course in the next semester it is offered by re-registering and paying the full tuition and fees. Withdrawing from a course constitutes an attempt at completing the course. Students are reminded that they are only allowed two attempts at any given course.
