Withdrawing from Courses

6 Drop Rule

By state law, all students enrolling for the first time at any Texas public college or university after Fall 2007 will be limited to six course withdrawals (drops) during their academic career.

Drops include those initiated by students or faculty and withdrawals from courses at other Texas public institutions. This policy does not apply to courses dropped prior to census day or to complete withdrawals from the college.

When you register:

  • See your advisor
  • Choose your courses carefully

Before you drop:

  • Discuss options with your professor
  • See your Counselor

Use campus resources such as tutoring and computer labs. If you have already dropped a course see a counselor immediately or call counseling.

Withdrawing from a Course

Any Student considering dropping or withdrawing consult with an Academic Counselor or Advisor to understand the implications on future plans, including progress toward a degree. Students can visit Self Service Banner and log in to drop the course or completely withdraw. To view drop dates please refer to the Academic Calendar.

If you have any questions please send an email to
