What's the difference between dropping a class and withdrawing from a class?

Life happens – and sometimes course withdrawals are necessary. You can drop a course through the 5th day of the term and receive a 100% refund. You may withdraw from a course without a refund until 67% of the course is completed. If you withdraw during this time, your transcript will show a “W” for the class grade.  

For more information on withdrawal policies, refer to the College Catalog. 

For withdrawal deadline dates, visit the Academic Calendar.

Online Class Withdrawal:

  • Log into Workday
  • Select the “TCC Academics" icon
  • Click "View My Courses" 
  • In the "My Enrolled Courses" window, scroll to the right and "click" withdraw for the desired course(s)
  • Click the "Confirm" box
  • Click the gold "OK" button to save your request
