Course Withdrawal Without Failing
There may be times when you may have an unexpected occurrence in your life that may require that you alter your college schedule or withdraw from all your classes. AMC offers several options in addressing such situations.
Withdrawing from one class or several classes before mid-semester will permit you to withdraw without failing. Notification of the last day for withdrawing without failing will be posted on monitors across campus. When you first realize that you need to withdraw from a class, talk with your instructor about other alternatives that may enable you to complete the class. If after meeting with your instructor you decide to withdraw from the class, obtain a Course Withdrawal From from the office of your course of study. Complete the form, obtain the necessary signatures, and submit it to the registrar's office.
Course Withdrawal Failing
After the Withdrawal Without Failing period has ended, if you withdraw from a class, you will receive a "WF" withdraw failing, on your transcript. Therefore, after careful consideration of your circumstance, you may consider staying in the course and attempting to earn the highest grade possible. Withdrawing failing from a class will negatively impact your semester and cumulative Grade Point Average.
If you find it necessary to withdraw from the college because of an emergency, a crisis, or unavoidable circumstances that will impede your academic progress, you may be granted a Hardship Withdrawal. Circumstance warranting a Hardship Withdrawal may include death of a family member, a personal illness, illness of immediate family members, a personal injury, a fire, or some other disaster. Documentation verifying the hardship must be submitted in support of the request for withdrawal. Before mid-semester students may withdraw from classes without failing through the college's regular withdrawal procedure. Students who are experience a hardship after the last day to withdraw without failing should consider applying for a Hardship Withdrawal through the Office of Academic Advisement.
