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 drops require the student to submit a Student Initiated Drop Form.  There is no fee to drop a course.  The Student Initiated Drop Form can be found on the Admissions and Records section of Student Services under Drops and Withdrawals.   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 Advising Center in the Student Services Building. For complete withdrawals at the Reese Center, please report to the Advising Center in Building 8 and for withdrawals at the Lubbock Center, please contact the Advisor 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 through their TexanConnect account, 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% credit of tuition and fees for Fall 2020 is August 23th, and for Spring 2021 is January 18th.
