35. Administrative Withdrawal
Administrative Withdrawal from an Online Course
It is the policy of the College that a student will be administratively withdrawn from a course due to lack of attendance in seated classes or nonparticipation in online classes. (Policy 5.36)

An instructor will administratively withdraw a student from class if that student meets either of the following criteria in an online course:

Does not access (as designated in online grade book) the course for 14 consecutive days without contacting the instructor (in a sixteen-week course).
Does not submit total assignments equating to 20% of total semester assignments (e.g. assignments, discussions, exam, homework, etc.)
Students should be aware that administrative withdrawal for lack of attendance or nonparticipation may reduce the amount of financial aid they receive, delay their graduation or necessitate repayment of aid already received and does not relieve their obligation to pay all tuition and fees due to the College.
