Audit Instructions Dropping A Class

Dropping a Class
Officially dropping a class is the procedure followed by students wishing to be removed from a class.  Discontinuing class attendance and/or notifying the instructor is not an official drop.  If a student fails to officially drop, registration is continued until the end of class and the grade earned is recorded on the student’s transcript. 

Dropping and/or withdrawing from a class(es) may affect your financial aid eligibility.  Before you adjust your enrollment status, we encourage you to contact the Financial Aid office.

Students may drop classes using the self-service feature inside MyValley, in the Admissions, Registration and Records office (room 9140) or at the Student Service Center on either campus. The Refund and Withdrawal chart provides deadlines for registration, refunds and withdrawals.

During the Refund Period:  If a student drops during the refund period, they will be issued a 100% refund and the course will not appear on their transcript.  Students eligible for a refund will be mailed a check or a refund will be applied to their credit card.

During the Withdrawal Period:  If a student withdraws, a “W,” meaning “withdrawal,” will be recorded on the student’s KVCC transcript, but will not affect the KVCC grade point average. It is highly recommended that students consult with the instructor and a counselor before withdrawing from a class.  Students will not receive a refund during the withdrawal period.
