Dropping Classes

Withdrawal Procedures

To withdraw from a class or completely withdraw from the college follow the appropriate steps outlined below. The student will be held responsible for any and all financial delinquencies which result from failure to complete the withdrawal process by the dates established in the Academic Calendar. In addition, if you do not officially withdraw from a class, you will receive a failing grade in that class. If you are enrolled in an online class through a KCTCS college other than ACTC, that college's calendar may be different. Check your course syllabus or contact your instructor to confirm those dates.

To Withdraw from a class or all classes from the First day of the class through Midterm:

  • Complete the withdrawal form and return it to the Admissions Office.
  • If you cannot withdraw in person, you must notify the Admissions Office by email, fax, or mail. As_admissions@kctcs.edu. The completed withdrawal form or email must include: your name, date, Student ID number, email address or phone number, class information (class #, prefix letters and section #: ex. 45123 ENG 101 45Z1), the semester you are withdrawing from, and your signature. Email requests must come from your official KCTCS email address.

To Withdraw from a class or Withdraw from all classes* after Midterm through the Last Day to Officially Withdraw**:

  • You must have instructor permission to withdraw from a class after midterm.
  • Complete the withdrawal form (available in the Admissions Office), and have the class instructor and a Financial Aid Specialist sign the form.  You must then return the withdrawal form to the Admissions Office.
    Keep a copy for your records.
  • If you cannot withdraw in person, you must notify the Admissions Office by email, fax, or mail. You must request permission to withdraw from the instructor in the class by email and forward the instructor’s permission email with your request to withdraw to As_admissions@kctcs.edu.  The completed withdrawal form or email must include: your name, date, Student ID number, email address or phone number, class information (class #, prefix letters and section #: ex. 45123 ENG 101 45Z1) the semester you are withdrawing from, and your signature. Email requests must come from your official KCTCS email address.

*Complete withdrawal from all classes can result in repayment of financial aid received. Consult your advisor and/or the Financial Aid Office before completely withdrawing from all classes.

**The Last Day to Officially Withdraw can be found in your syllabus or determined by the official Academic Calendar. Academic Calendars can vary in online courses, depending on the offering school.

Any student withdrawing from a developmental course at any time during the semester MUST have the instructor’s signature.
