*Greetings Students, *

*I'm starting to get questions about withdrawing from courses;
specifically, I'm being asked, "Is it too late to withdraw?"  *

*The answer is: it is too late to withdraw from an EMCC class and
automatically receive a grade of "W", which does not affect your grade
point average (GPA).  Students who withdraw from courses after March 31st
will receive a grade of Administrative Failure (AF) which counts as a
failing grade.  *

*The only exception is if a student writes to the Academic Dean at EMCC and
can show there are valid, extenuating circumstances for dropping the
course.  Examples of extenuating circumstances are illness or injury
requiring hospitalization or a death in the family. *

*Withdrawing from a class might also impact your financial aid
eligilbility, so it is a good idea to contact the Student Aid Office at
EMCC before you withdraw.  The phone number is 974-4625. *

*There are still five weeks remaining in the semester.  If you are
struggling to pass a class, I urge you to talk to your instructor about
what you need to improve, make sure you turn in ALL assignments, and make a
commitment to attend EVERY CLASS.  You are more than welcome to meet with
me for help in making a plan to complete your class successfully.  My
schedule is available at https://anndelaneyyoucanbook.me/
<https://anndelaneyyoucanbook.me/> or you may make an appointment at the
front desk. *

*If you still decide to withdraw from a class, I've attached the form
you'll need to complete and turn in at the front desk.  Kim, Terry, Lynne
or I can answer any questions you may have about the form, so don't
hesitate to ask. *

*Best wishes, *
