Petitioning & Withdrawing

Petitioning

Students seeking exceptions to College policy must submit a petition form to the Professional Technical Programs Office (MTB 101). Actions which are decided by the Petition Committee include reinstatement after suspension, financial aid appeals, late drops, late adds, overloads, and late total withdrawals.

The Chair of the Petition Committee will correspond with students in writing following a decision by the committee. Further instructions can be found on the form below.


Petition Form

Withdrawing

The last day to withdraw from courses is published on the instructional calendar located on the Admission/Registrar website at www.lcsc.edu/registrar/academic-calendar  Withdrawal after this date requires a petition appeal. Petitions for late withdrawal from classes are decided by the Petition Committee.

The withdrawal deadline, whereby students earn a W on their transcript, is the Thursday before advance registration. Students who wish to withdraw from Summer classes, or classes that do not meet an entire term, must do so before 64% of the entire days of the class have expired. Dropping a class after this date requires a petition appeal to the Petition Committee.

Students seeking to withdraw from a course after the deadline (through the petition process), must secure a signature from the faculty member who taught the course as well as their Division Chair before forwarding the form to the Petition Committee for a final decision. Neither LCSC faculty nor staff will normally initiate the withdrawal of a student on the basis of non-attendance. Failure to officially withdraw or change enrollment will constitute sufficient cause to receive a grade of “F” in the class.

Withdrawal from a Single Course

Students withdrawing from one or more courses at any time must initiate withdrawal by completing an add/drop form, which may be obtained from the Office of Admission/Registrar. A grade of “W” will be entered on the permanent transcript for each course. Students who fail to complete the official withdrawal process will be considered enrolled and will be graded accordingly.

Total Withdrawal from All Semester Courses

The deadline for withdrawal from college for Fall and Spring semesters is the Thursday before Advance Registration; for Summer Session deadlines, see the table above. Withdrawing from all classes after this deadline requires a petition appeal. Students withdrawing from all enrolled courses (total withdrawal from college) at any time must initiate withdrawal by logging on to WarriorWeb and submitting a Total Withdrawal Form. Students seeking to totally withdraw from all courses after the deadline (through the petition process), must secure signatures from EACH faculty member and each Division Chair, from each class enrolled in before forwarding the petition form to the Petition Committee. A grade of “W” will be entered on the permanent transcript for each course. Students who fail to complete the official withdrawal process will be considered enrolled and will be graded accordingly. Neither LCSC faculty nor staff will normally initiate the withdrawal of a student on the basis of non-attendance unless the student is medically incapacitated or a harm to himself/herself or others.

A student may not totally withdraw from all courses in a term if any of the classes in the respective term have been graded. Students who have totally withdrawn from all courses for a term, will not be allowed to register for any subsequent classes in the same term.

Incapacitated Student Withdrawal

When a college official is made aware that a currently enrolled student has become incapacitated due to injury or illness and the Registrar receives written confirmation of such from a medical doctor, the Registrar shall initiate a total withdrawal on the student’s behalf.
