According to MxCC’s Academic Policies, a student may withdraw from any course after the add/drop period until the end of the 11th week of the semester (for the Fall and Spring semesters). The withdrawal deadline for accelerated courses is the date at which 75% of the total course time has been completed. A registered student wishing to withdraw MUST submit a withdrawal request, in writing, to the Office of Enrollment Services. The effective date of withdrawal is the date the request is received by the Office of Enrollment Services.

For the request of a withdrawal received prior to the first day of a semester, a refund of 100% of total tuition only will be granted. For the request of a withdrawal received on the first day of classes and through the fourteenth calendar day of that semester, a refund of 50% of total tuition applicable to the courses for which registered will be granted.

  1. Prior to the fourteenth calendar day of a semester, you can either stop by the Office of Enrollment Services with your photo ID or Fax (860-344-3055) your request to the Office of Enrollment Services without an approval from your instructor. The letter would need to state your intent on dropping the course (course title, CRN) with your signature. We can’t process anything without a signature. A grade of W will be granted by this time.
  2. Beyond the fourteenth calendar day after the first day of classes, no refund of tuition will be granted. Before the 11th week or a semester or 75% of total course time, upon the request of a withdrawal. You MUST follow the following procedure to officially withdraw your online class:
    • Fill out the Application for Withdrawal After the Refund Date (www.mxcc.edu/withdraw) with your information, class information, and your signature.

If you are unable to come to campus (or your instructor is unable to meet with you) to have your instructor sign the form, you can email your professor stating that: “I am seeking your approval to withdraw from your class, (Class Name), and receive a grade of W for the class.”
    • If you receive Financial Aid or Veterans Benefits, you must also have the designated representative sign your withdrawal form in the appropriate location as well.
