General Policies: Drop or Withdraw

Grossmont College has very well described policies and deadlines for dropping this class (see College catalog).

If you stop doing work the class, you will receive the letter grade of F unless you OFFICIALLY drop the course. Although I hate doing it, this happens every semester. This is YOUR responsibility to do, by:

  1. *using WebAdvisor online, or

  2. *by filling out a drop card at the Office of Admissions and Records.

Admissions and Records has a specific phone number you can call to hear information about the drop deadlines (see box at left). Note, in particular, that WebAdvisor is NOT available 24 hour a day!! As of this writing, it is UNavailable on Sundays, and closes at 9 PM other nights.

NEW POLICY: Repeating This Class

As you know, if you get a D, F, or W in this course, you can probably take it again. But a new policy limits the number of times you can repeat it.

  1. *A student, through a combination of substandard grades (D or F) and withdrawals (W) on their student record, may only take a class three times.

  2. *If a student, through a combination of substandard grades (D or F) and withdrawals, wishes to take a class for the fourth time, they must submit a petition to the Admissions and Records Office. Petitions will only be approved based on extenuating circumstances.

  3. *Military Withdrawals do not count in terms of these repetition restrictions, nor do Withdrawals that occur due to fire or flood (Title 5 Sections 55024 and 58509).

  4. *This rule does not contain a “grandfather” clause. If a student has already reached the maximum allowed number of course repetitions, the district will not be able to claim apportionment for that course. What this means is that you do have to count the times you take a course before these rules kick in.

Inactivity drop
Students who are inactive will be dropped from the course. If an entire week goes by with no activity on your part--either through discussion board participation, submitting work, or taking a quiz or exam, you can be dropped.
Thus, you must let me know if your contribution to the class will be interrupted. You don’t need an excuse (your grandparents are safe, grin), but you do need to let me know.
