How can my parents get access to my grades?
How do I drop a class? How do I withdraw from a class? What's the difference?
A dropped class doesn't show up on your transcript and doesn't impact your GPA.
After the drop period, and until two-thirds of the class is complete, you can withdraw from a class with approval from the instructor and your advisor. You must complete the Course Withdrawal form (located in the Office of the Registrar) and return it to 300 Taylor Hall, for processing. For deadlines, see the Office of the Registrar homepage.
A withdrawn class will receive a grade of "W," but the grade doesn't impact your GPA.
