DROP/WITHDRAWAL POLICY & PROCEDURE

If you are unable to start or complete the course(s) for which you have enrolled, it is your responsibility to officially drop/withdraw from the course(s) through proper procedures. Failure to follow the drop/withdrawal procedures could result in you receiving a grade of “F.”

After registration closes on TexanConnect for the semester, all drop/withdrawals require the student's signature and must be initiated in person with a picture ID through the Admissions and Records Office. Remember to contact the appropriate campus for office hours. A $5 drop fee will be charged for each drop. Go to Admissions to complete and print a Student Initiated Drop Form. If you are a student attending the Levelland Campus and you wish to completely withdraw from all your classes, please initiate your withdrawal by reporting in person to the Counseling Center in the Student Services Building. For complete withdrawals at the Reese Center, please report to the Counseling Center in Building 8.  For withdrawals at the Lubbock Center, please contact the Counselor in room LBC100B.  Students at the Plainview Center should report to the Main Office.

Please review the Academic Calendar for information on the last day to drop or withdraw from a class without receiving a grade.

Effective Fall 2007 Semester, students who enroll in college for the first time during the fall 2007 academic term or any term subsequent to the fall 2007 term, an institution of higher education may not permit an undergraduate student to drop a total of more than six (6) courses, including any course a transfer student has dropped at another institution of higher education.

During late registration, students may modify their schedule, but not completely withdraw.  Once classes begin, students will need to follow the procedures above to completely withdraw for the semester.  

REFUND POLICY

The refund policy of South Plains College is based on the fact that student tuition and fees provide only a fraction of the cost of providing educational opportunities. When a student enrolls in a class, he or she reserves a place which cannot be made available to another student until he or she officially drops the class. Also, a student’s original enrollment represents a sizeable cost to the College whether or not the student starts or completes the class. Therefore, the refund policy below will be followed without exception, regardless of the reason for withdrawal. These refund schedules are subject to change without notice.


1. Students who OFFICIALLY WITHDRAW from the institution shall have their tuition and mandatory fees refunded according to the following schedule. This refund schedule is based on FULL payment of tuition and fees. The last day to completely withdraw and receive a 100% refund for Fall 2019 is
