Withdrawal Procedures

General Information

Students who successfully complete the withdrawal process, either class or college, will receive a grade of “W” on their official college transcript. Withdrawals (W’s) are not used in the computation of a student’s semester or cumulative grade point average. Withdrawals are used by the Financial Aid Office in the computation of attempted hours for financial aid eligibility.

Withdrawal from Class

Northeast Mississippi Community College strongly supports activities that promote student success in classes and degree programs. With this goal in mind, the college provides a means for students to withdraw from individual classes. Students are encouraged to maintain their enrollment in all courses for the full semester. In cases where the academic load is too great to maintain, the student may reduce his/her load by withdrawing from one or more classes. Students are strongly encouraged to maintain full-time status (12 or more hours), if practical. Withdrawal period begins the day after drop/add and ends on the Monday one week before final exams.  Online classes will follow the MSVCC calendar withdrawal ending dates. Student that receive state aid (MTAG, MESG) must enroll in and complete 15 semester credit hours each semester. 

The student who desires to withdraw from class should contact the instructor of the individual course. The following process applies to all class withdrawals:
