Withdrawal from Classes

In compliance with State Board of Education Rule 6A-14.0301, the following procedures will be followed relating to a student withdrawal:

  • Students may withdraw without academic penalty through the published date in the Academic and Registration Calendar for each semester. Students wishing to withdraw from a mini-semester course must do so prior to the date specified on the course syllabus.
  • No refund is issued for a withdrawal. The grade of “W” is issued and will remain on the student’s transcript.
  • Students may officially withdraw from all of their courses via their LOIS account before the published withdrawal deadline. 
  • Dual enrollment students and student athletes will not be eligible to withdraw from any of their courses via LOIS. To withdraw from any course, these students need to complete the Student Course Withdrawal Form and submit it to the appropriate office before the published withdrawal deadline.
  • Students should consult with an academic advisor and, if applicable, the Financial Aid Office prior to withdrawing from a class to discuss the potential ramifications of a withdrawal.

LSSC permits several types of written administrative appeal requests including requests for late withdrawal, administrative drop/refund, a waiver to avoid the full cost of instruction of a third attempt, and request for a fourth course attempt. See www.lssc.edu/studev for information regarding the appeal criteria and the process for requesting an appeal.
