How to Withdraw (DROP) a class
Posted: 9/10/2013 1:35:39 PM
Instructions and information about dropping a class.

Withdrawal Procedure
There is an exciting new addition to the way a student can drop a course!
Visit your Cardinal Connection Student Portal to drop your class online!

  • TVCC Withdrawal policy states, “A student may withdraw (drop) from all courses and receive a grade of “W” at any time during a given semester subject to the withdrawal or last day to receive a “W” deadline specified in the College Calendar. A grade of “F” will be assigned for courses dropped after the deadline specified in the College Calendar. Exceptions to this policy must be approved by the Vice President of Instruction.
  • Withdrawal or drop procedures must be initiated in the Guidance Office. The drop form must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office with appropriate signatures before it is official. Withdrawal requests will not be accepted by telephone.
  • It is the student’ responsibility to officially withdraw from a course or verify that the instructor has initiated the drop process.

    Effective Spring 2013, students enrolled in ANY developmental courses will NOT be allowed to withdraw from ANY developmental courses. Furthermore, instructors can NOT withdraw their students developmental course. ALL developmental students will earn a grade of A, B, C, I/P or F and are NOT eligible to receive a “W” in any developmental course. If you accumulate excessive absences in this developmental course, you may receive an “F” in this course

  • If a student enrolls in a class for the 3rd time, an additional free of $60 per credit hour will be charged and added to the current tuition and fee rate.
  • NOTE: A new THECB Rule has been established to address a new law enacted by the legislature regarding the number of withdrawals (W”s) that a student may have during their academic career (THECB Rules: Chapter 4, Subchapter A, 4.10). The law states that any student whose first semester in college is fall 2007 or later may not have more than six (6) unexcused withdrawals, they will no longer be allowed to withdraw from a course without receiving a grade in the course (which will be an “F”). To determine if a withdrawal is excused, a student must process a withdrawal request through the guidance service office. If an instructor initiates a withdrawal, it is automatically an unexcused withdrawal. It is the student’s responsibility to officially withdraw from a course.
