HOW TO DROP A CLASS ONLINE VIA CARDINAL CONNECTION

To drop a class online, visit the Cardinal Connection web portal and login to your Student account.  Once logged in, select Drop A Class from the available menu choices and follow the detailed instructions listed.



IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT DROPPING CLASSES

  • 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 date specified on the college calendar."
  • A grade of “F” will be assigned for courses dropped after the deadline specified on the college calendar.
  • Exceptions to this policy must be approved by the Vice President of Instruction.
  • Withdrawal or drop procedures may be initiated online by the student via Cardinal Connection or in person at the Advisement Center.
  • For drop requests initiated in the Advisement Center, the drop request form must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office with appropriate signatures before it is official.
  • Withdrawal or "drop" requests WILL NOT be accepted by telephone. 
  • It is the student’s responsibility to officially withdraw or "drop" a course or verify that the instructor has initiated the drop process.

SIX "W" RULE
  • If a student enrolls in a class for the 3rd time, an additional fee of $96.00 per credit hour will be charged and added to the current tuition and fee rate.
  • The THECB law states that any student whose first semester in college is fall 2007 or later may not have more than six (6) unexcused drops or withdrawals.
  • After the student has 6 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 Advisement Center.
  • If an instructor initiates a withdrawal, it is automatically an unexcused withdrawal.
  • It is the student's responsibility to officially withdraw or "drop" from a course.

DROPPING DEVELOPMENTAL CLASSES
  • Students are not allowed to withdraw or drop a developmental course.
  • Instructors do not have the power to withdraw or drop a student from a developmental course.
  • All students taking a developmental course will receive a grade of A, B, C or F.
  • Students with excessive absences in a developmental course risk receiving an "F" for non-attendance.
