Withdrawing from Courses
Students withdraw from courses using E-Services. Once logged in, students select “Courses & Registration” and then “View/Modify Schedule” to select the course(s) from which to withdraw. Students confirm the action by entering their StarID password.
In compliance with Minnesota State Procedure 3.34.1, the official course withdrawal date is when eighty percent (80%) of the days in the academic semester have elapsed. For courses not on a standard academic semester schedule, the final date for official course withdrawal is the date on which eighty percent (80%) of the instructional days for the course have elapsed. The last day to withdraw is noted on the online course schedule.
Withdrawing from a course results in a “W” grade for the course. While withdrawing does not impact the grade point average (GPA), it does decrease the completion rate. Students must complete 66.67% of all credits attempted at CLC to remain in good academic standing for academic and financial aid purposes.
Students are strongly encouraged to meet with an advisor before deciding to withdraw from a course(s). No refunds are given for withdrawing from individual courses and there may be financial aid considerations as well.
Students with documented extenuating circumstances may appeal to withdraw after the deadline. Please meet with your advisor first.
Transfer Review and Transfer Appeal
Students not satisfied with Central Lakes College’s transfer decisions may request an additional review and/or appeal through E-Services. Students submit additional documentation such as course syllabi, course outlines, course descriptions, etc. through E-Services.
