Withdrawing from a Class

We understand life sometimes prevents you from finishing a class. If you must withdraw, follow these steps to make sure you get the best refund.

How to Withdraw

If you decide to drop a class, you must complete the Add-Drop-Withdrawal form and submit it to Admissions and Enrollment Services in person or via your mySTLCC email account. Keep the following in mind:

  • You must withdraw from a class formally. If you stop attending or don’t pay, you are still registered and will receive a letter grade.
  • The length of the class determines the deadline for withdrawing.
  • If you are withdrawn from a class, you may no longer attend the class.
  • The week ends on Friday. The week to withdraw from a class always ends on a Friday, regardless of what day of the week the class is held on.
  • You will be refunded for the class if you withdraw before the deadlines. Each semester has deadlines that will determine if you are refunded fully, partially or not at all.
  • Refunds are returned through a third party provider. If you withdraw from a class before the deadline, your refund will be processed from BankMobile.
  • Summer classes have their own refund schedule. You will receive a full refund of payments made if you withdraw before the first class.
  • If you have outstanding debt or a future balance with STLCC, refunds of any payment will be applied to that balance.
