Students may drop or withdraw from a course(s) and receive a 100 percent refund up until the last day of registration. Dropping a course(s) may affect a student’s financial aid.
After the last day of registration and up until 60 percent of the course instruction has occurred, students may drop or withdraw a course(s) with a “W” grade posted on the transcript. Refer to the academic calendar and your student center on myNSC for 50 percent refund dates.
Students are not permitted to drop/withdraw from courses after 60 percent of the course instruction has occurred. A grade of “F” will be assigned for the unofficial drop/withdrawal.
Students with extenuating circumstances may file a petition for a “W” or “I” grade on one or more courses or withdraw completely from the college in lieu of the “F” grade assigned for unofficial drop or withdrawal. In both cases, students must follow the rules regarding policy for incomplete grade and complete withdrawal from the college.
Extenuating circumstances include but are not limited to:
Deployment of the student in the United States Armed Forces;
Death or incapacitation resulting from an illness or injury of the student or the student’s spouse, child, parent, or legal guardian that prevents the student from returning to the school for the remainder of the semester;
Involuntary job transfer outside of the service area of the institution as documented by employer; or
Other exceptional circumstance beyond the control of the institution or the student.
