How to Withdraw From a Course

Refer to the Academic Calendar to find out THE LAST DAY TO DO A CLASS WITHDRAW for the current semester. (Please note that your signed form or advisor email must be submitted in to the Registrar's Office by 5PM!)

HOW TO WITHDRAW FROM A COURSE:

  • If you decide to withdraw from a course you are struggling in using one of your allotted university drops, you can NOT do it yourself in Banner. FOR ALL ON CAMPUS courses (Cmp=008) you MUST send an email to your advisor including the following info:
    • Your name
    • Banner ID
    • Your major
    • Course prefix and number (for example: "HLTH 1000")
  • Your advisor may ask that you come in to see him/her so make sure to respond appropriately to any follow-up given to your request. FOR ALL ONLINE DISTANCE ED courses (Cmp=650) you MUST send an email to DEdrops@ecu.edu including the following info:
    • Your name
    • Banner ID
    • Your major
    • Course prefix and number (for example: "EXSS 1000")

MAKE SURE you have a course withdraw left to use - you started out with 4! You can check to see how many class withdraws you have left, but logging onto OneStop; click Tools tab; click Dropped Courses. If you need us to check on this, call the Advising Center at (252) 328-4645. You must know your Banner ID at the time of your call.

  • PLEASE NOTE that if you are on Student Academic Progress (SAP) probation with financial aid, dropping a course may hurt you - it is STRONGLY suggested that you meet with your Financial Aid counselor prior to dropping your course.
  • If you are DROPPING BELOW FULL-TIME (12 credit hours) you must make sure that you will remain okay with your academic standing/overall GPA goals, Financial Aid, and health insurance coverage.
