Withdrawal From College

To withdraw from all current classes, students must obtain a Dalton State College Schedule Adjustment Form which must be signed by authorized personnel in the Office of Enrollment Services. After the published drop date, withdrawal without penalty is permitted only in cases of extreme, non-academic hardship which prevents the student from completing the semester. To receive consideration for a non-academic hardship, a student must provide full documentation of the hardship, wherever possible including corroborative evidence originating from an official or authoritative source.

All requests for hardship withdrawal must be initiated by the student no later than the last day of the term in which the courses were taken. Hardship withdrawals require that the student withdraw from all courses not yet completed at the time the request is initiated.

The hardship “W” must be recommended by the instructor(s) of the course(s) for which the student is enrolled, endorsed by the department chair(s) or dean(s) involved, and approved by the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Withdrawal from Dalton State College is effective on the date that the withdrawal is initiated.
