W (Withdrawal) is not an automatic process. The student is responsible for officially withdrawing, through the Admissions and Records Office, to avoid receiving "F" or "NP" (no-pass) grades.
Upon entering Coastline Community College, the student assumes the responsibility of completing each course in which he/she is registered. A college student is expected to attend all sessions of the classes in which he/she is enrolled. An instructor may drop a student for excessive absences when the instructor determines that, due to absences, the student may not successfully complete the course. Students who miss the first meeting of the class may also be dropped. Students who are dropped by their instructors for missing the first class meeting or for excessive absences should verify the instructor drop with the Admissions and Records office in order to avoid grade penalties and to comply with critical drop dates as specified.
Each student is responsible to complete OR officially withdraw from each class in which he/she enrolls.
For full-term classes, no transcript notation will be made for official withdrawals made during the first two weeks of the semester. For specific dates, refer to your Student Class Program (Web Schedule Bill) or download the free app from the app stores and find it on your Smartphone!
Official withdrawals made after the 2nd week and before the end of the 12th week of the term (75% of the term) will be counted toward repeatability limits as well as be counted toward progress probation and disqualification. W’s are not used in grade point average calculation.
Withdrawals are not permissible after the 12th week for full-term courses or 75% for short-term courses. After that deadline, student must be assigned a grade (A, B, C, D, F, P or NP).
We recommend students consult with a counselor regarding the consequences of withdrawing from courses.
Students who are dropped by their instructors for missing the first class meeting or for excessive absences should verify the instructor drop with the Admissions and Records office in order to avoid grade penalties and to comply with critical drop dates as specified.
Students should be aware that "W’s" are used to determine academic status.
