We know after you register for classes your schedule may change. We are happy to offer
flexible options for students, but it is important to understand the impact of changing
You are able to add and drop classes before the term begins. You will not be responsible
academically or financially for any changes made during this time. The add and drop
deadlines can be found in the Enrollment Guide
Once classes begin, there is an add and drop period when you can change your schedule.
The deadlines for adding and dropping can be found in the Enrollment Guide. Please note, during the add and drop period (after classes begin) a $15 fee will
be charged each time you make a change to your class schedule.
If you no longer wish to be registered in a course, you must drop or withdraw from
the course. If you do not drop or withdraw from the course, you will continue to be
registered and will be held academically and financially responsible for the course.
It is recommended to contact Financial Aid and/or Advising to learn how this may impact you.
After the add/drop period, if you wish to change your schedule, please know there
may be an academic and financial impact. Removing a class after the add/drop period
is considered a withdrawal, not a drop. A withdrawal from a class will result in a
grade of “W” on your college transcript, which is considered an unsuccessful attempt
at a course, but does not impact your overall GPA calculation.
A withdrawal from a course may or may not result in a refund. These refund deadlines
can be found in the Enrollment Guide. It is recommended to contact Financial Aid and/or Advising to learn how this may impact you.
When you register for a class at HCCC, you agree to be responsible for meeting deadlines
and financial obligations. The College is also sensitive to the fact that students
may face difficult situations beyond their control. For this reason, the College offers
students the ability to petition for a withdrawal after the deadline, a grade change
(“F” to “W”), and/or a financial adjustment to their tuition bill. Only petitions
with detailed documentation will be considered for up to one year after the circumstance.
After the withdrawal deadline, students may only withdraw from a course by submitting
a Special Circumstances for Withdrawal (SCW) form, which will be reviewed by a committee
and your Division Dean. If approved, you will receive a grade of “W”. The SCW form
can be accessed here.
A withdrawal from a class will result in a grade of “W” on your college transcript,
which is considered an unsuccessful attempt at a course, but does not impact your
overall GPA calculation.
