Dropping a Class

During the Registration Period 

During the pre-registration, open registration, and late registration period of each term, adding and dropping of classes can be managed online by logging into MySPC and accessing TexanConnect. View the SPC Academic Calendar for all registration periods.

You CANNOT add, drop, or switch courses through TexanConnect after the registration period is over. 

After the Registration Period through the Official Census Date 

Once the late registration period is over for the semester, students must drop classes IN PERSON in the Admissions and Records Office located in the Student Services Building on the Levelland Campus, the Reese Campus Advising Center in Building 8, the Lubbock Center Advising Office, or the Plainview Center Main Office. 

There is a $5 drop fee (cash or money order only). Click here for office hours.

After the Official Census Date 

  1. Complete and print  Student Initiated Drop Form.
  2. Get instructor's signature for each course being dropped.
  3. Return signed form to the Levelland Admissions and Records Office or Reese Student Support Office in Building 8 with $5 drop fee (cash or money order only).  You must have a picture ID to complete the drop. (If you are a student taking 100% online courses and you are living out of district, please contact the Admissions and Records Office at 806-716-2570 for instructions on submitting the form.) 

Changes are not official until all steps in the process have been completed. 

Failure to follow the drop procedures could result in you receiving a grade of "F".

Six Course Drop Limit

Beginning in the Fall 2007 semester, all freshmen who enroll in a Texas public institution of higher education for the first time during the fall 2007 semester and thereafter, will be limited to six course drops throughout their entire undergraduate career. All course drops, including those initiated by students or faculty and any course a transfer student has dropped at another institution, automatically count toward the limit. Exceptions to the rule include: 

  • Students who entered college before the fall 2007 semester.
  • Courses taken by dual credit or early admission students.
  • Courses dropped at private or out-of-state institutions.
  • Remedial or developmental courses.
  • Workforce development and continuing education courses.
  • Courses that meet the definition of complete withdrawal.
  • Courses dropped before the official census date.
  • Courses dropped due to good cause as determined by the college. 

Complete Withdrawal

To completely withdraw from all your classes, please initiate your withdrawal by reporting IN PERSON to the Advising and Testing Center located in the Student Services Building at the Levelland Campus or the Advising and Testing Center in Building 8 at the Reese Center. 

Withdrawals must have the student's original signature; therefore, cannot be made by phone or fax.

Failure to follow the withdrawal procedures could result in you receiving a grades of "F".
