Dropping and Withdrawing from Dual Enrollment Classes

  • High school students who are enrolled in PDCCC courses given at a PDCCC campus or center, or online, should refer to PDCCC’s regular academic calendar for information about session start and end dates, and drop and withdrawal deadlines.
  • Students in Dual Enrollment courses given at their high school must begin the drop or withdrawal process through their high school guidance counselors.
  • When a student is dropped from a course, the course is removed from the transcript as if the student had never been enrolled in the course.
  • High Schools are not billed by PDCCC for dropped enrollments.
  • After the drop period has passed, a student wishing to leave a course must request a withdrawal. A withdrawal form must be signed by the student (or the parent, if the student is under 18) and the high school, then forwarded to the Dual Enrollment Coordinator for processing.
  • Withdrawals will show on the academic transcript as a W. This will not affect the student’s grade point average, but too many W’s on a transcript can eventually affect a student’s ability to receive financial aid or scholarships.
  • High Schools must pay the full agreed upon tuition for the withdrawn course.
  • After the last date for withdrawals, students will finish the course with a letter grade of A through F.
