Students who wish to drop a course must do so in writing and must have the approval of the Academic Advisement Department. Courses dropped during the first two weeks of classes do not appear on the student’s transcript. Withdrawal from a 15-week course between weeks three and 12 will result in a grade of WP or WF, which indicates whether the student was passing or failing the course at the time it was dropped. A grade of W will be assigned to students who enrolled in but did not participate in a course. Students who do not officially drop a course will receive a letter grade that reflects their achievement.
Medical Assistant students are only eligible to take the Practicum course twice throughout the Medical Assistant program. Medical Assistant students who receive a grade of D or below in the Practicum course, or who withdraw from the course, may repeat that course. Students who receive a grade of D or below in the repeated course, or who withdraw for a second time, will be dismissed automatically from the Medical Assistant program.
