Withdrawal Policy

TexasEducation Code 51.907 Course Drop Limit Provisions
Students who enroll as an entering freshman or a first-time college student in undergraduate courses at any Texas public community college, technical institute, health sciences institution, or any public university offering undergraduate courses must comply with the legislation of TEC51.907.
TEC51.907 states that students who enroll for the first time during the fall 2007 semester or any subsequent semester are subject to the course drop limit of six course drops. This includes any course a transfer student has dropped at another institution.
(Collin College will begin to count withdrawn courses Fall 2009 semester.)


Drops after the term census date are considered withdrawals and appear as a "W" on the transcript.
Students are able to withdraw from a class (or classes) on CougarWeb. However, if a student wants to withdraw from ALL classes after census, the student is required to come to campus to complete the total withdrawal. CougarWeb will not process total withdrawals.
Please refer to chart below for Last Day to Withdraw for the specified terms.

Prior  to withdrawing, students should talk with their professors and/or their advisors. Student  athletes, international students, and students receiving financial aid and/or veteran's benefits are required to notify the appropriate office prior to dropping or withdrawing from classes and to get written approval from that specific office.

Failure to drop or withdraw on or before the Last Day to Withdraw will result in a performance grade.
Please refer to the chart below for Last Day to Withdraw for the specified terms.

Students enrolled in an express class should contact the Admissions and Records Office for the last day to withdraw. Last day to withdraw varies according to the length of the class. Refunds will also vary.
