Online Students - Course Drops and Withdrawals
At times it becomes necessary for students to withdraw from a class. All withdrawal requests must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar IN WRITING via your ECU email account.
NOTIFYING THE INSTRUCTOR IS NOT SUFFICIENT. After reading the Undergraduate or Graduate details below, see the bottom of the page for instructions.
The consequences of withdrawing from a course or term may affect a student’s progress in a major, tuition surcharge, and/or financial aid.
A student may withdraw from a course, or courses, without a grade as posted in the Academic Calendar. Course drops done between the end of the Course Adjustment Period and the last day to drop term-length courses without a grade will be charged against the student’s course drop allocation. Students may with-draw from up to 16 semester hours during their pursuit of a university degree, see the Registrar’s page for details. After this prescribed period, withdrawals will be permitted for only the most urgent and compelling reasons. All withdrawal requests must be submitted in writing via your ECU email account to the Office of the Registrar.
A graduate non-doctoral student may drop a course and receive no grade according to the date given in the Graduate School calendar. A student who drops a course after the last day for graduate students to drop a class without a grade will receive a final grade of F, unless he or she has permission from the Dean of the Graduate School to drop for medical reasons or other justification. All withdrawal requests must be submitted in writing via your ECU email account to the Office of the Registrar.
