Dropping, Late Dropping or Withdrawing
Students often confuse these terms. Dropping a Course (or courses) may occur during the first eight weeks of the semester. This means, however, that the student is still enrolled in other course work. (Learning Support courses cannot be dropped.) Late Dropping of a course may occur after the eighth week, but only when verifiable extenuating circumstances can be demonstrated. Verifiable extenuating circumstances must be reasons beyond the control of the student, such as illness or accidental injury. Poor performance in class is not an extenuating circumstance. Withdrawing from the university means that you are discontinuing all your course work, and are no longer enrolled. This may occur until two days before the last day of classes.
Dropping from full-time to part-time status after census date could result in the loss of your Tennessee Educational Lottery Scholarship. Dropping classes or withdrawing from the University may impact the student's future financial aid eligibility. Students should be familiar with the ETSU Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards.
Check the Academic Calendar for the "Drop" and "Withdrawal" deadlines for this semester.
