Dropping/Withdrawing From a Class

To drop or withdraw from a course, send your instructor an email from your TCL student email account requesting to be dropped or withdrawn from the course. Save a copy of the email. Please contact Financial Aid before dropping or withdrawing from a course to determine any impact on their financial aid.

Important:

Dropping or withdrawing from a course will affect your progress toward your educational goal. There may be financial implications for dropping or withdrawing after the start of the semester.

  • Talk with your instructor about your situation.
  • If you receive Financial Aid, meet with your Financial Aid Counselor to determine the impact of dropping or withdrawing to your aid.

Effective Fall 2022: Class Attendance and Drops/Withdrawals

Technical College of the Lowcountry expects students to complete all course requirements. Class attendance is integral to academic success. Absences disrupt a student’s academic progress, contribute to poor academic performance, and significantly diminish the quality of group interaction. Students are expected to attend class on time and to remain in class for the duration. Faculty are required to verify attendance on a specified day to capture census reporting data as required to comply with federal financial aid regulations. Students that have not attended class by the census reporting date will be reported as a “never attends” and administratively removed from the course.

Students are responsible for making up the work missed during any absence. If it becomes necessary to withdraw from a course(s) or the college, it is the student’s responsibility to complete the college’s approved withdrawal process.

Some programs with accreditation requirements may have a stricter attendance policy. Exceptions to the general policy must be approved by the Vice President for Academic Affairs (VPAA) or his/her designee and must be printed in the course syllabus.

How do I drop a class?

  • Log in to your TCL Self-Service account.
  • Select Student Planning.
  • Go to Plan and Schedule.
  • Find the course you would like to drop and click the “drop” button.
  • Confirm the drop.

Financial Aid: What happens when you withdraw?

Students who withdraw from classes may need an R2T4 (Return of Title IV Funds) completed. TCL recalculates federal financial aid for students who withdraw from the college prior to completing 60% of the term in accordance with the Return of Title IV Federal Funds regulations. The recalculation is based on the percent of earned aid for the term. The percent earned is determined by the number of calendar days completed divided by the number of calendar days in the term. Contact Financial Aid for more information.

When the R2T4 calculation results in students being eligible to receive previously undistributed “earned” aid (Post-Withdrawal Disbursement), they will be notified via email. Written authorization from the student will be requested and is required before a loan can be processed and disbursed to the student. The student may choose to decline some or all of the PWD funds as to not incur further debt.
