How to Withdraw from a Class

Prior to withdrawing from a class, you need to consider how a withdrawal may impact items such as financial aid and/or veteran’s benefits. If you are a high school student, you need to consider how this could impact your progress towards high school graduation.


If you are a financial aid or veteran’s benefit recipient, you MUST first speak with your financial aid coordinator/representative to discuss how your financial aid or veteran’s benefits could be affected by a withdrawal.
If you are receiving federal or state financial aid (a Pell grant or student loan) or veteran’s benefits (including housing), withdrawing from a class may impact your eligibility to receive financial aid now or in the future. In some cases, you may be required to pay back some or all of the money awarded. You are required to consult with the CFCC financial aid and/or veteran’s offices BEFORE contacting a Counselor to request a withdrawal.   Contact the Financial Aid Office


Initiate the discussion with your CFCC Counselor:

Complete the Withdrawal contact form . (Your CFCC counselor will reach out to you to discuss.)

*If you are a high school student (CCP/Early College/SeaTech), please discuss this with your high school counselor or early college liaison as they must approve your withdrawal before your CFCC counselor will initiate the withdrawal.

You may set up an appointment with your CFCC Counselor one of two ways:

Schedule an appointment to meet virtually or by phone to discuss


Stop in for a Face-to-Face discussion:
Wilmington Campus – U-123 (Monday-Friday 8am – 5pm)
North Campus – NA-100 (Monday-Friday 8am – 12pm)


FINAL STEP IS REQUIRED. This step is critical in order for your withdrawal to continue through the withdrawal process. You will receive an e-mail in your CFCC e-mail with a link to go in to approve the request via an electronic form. Your withdrawal cannot be processed if this step is not completed which could result in a failing grade at the end of the term. Please be sure that you complete this final step.
