To avoid academic penalty, students must withdraw from a course prior to the mid-point of the session to receive a grade of "W." The "W" grade is not considered in computing grade point averages. Course withdrawals after the midpoint date result in a grade of "WF." The "WF" grade is computed as an "F" grade. The midpoints for all sessions and other academic deadlines are available at http://internet.gsc.edu/registrar/Pages/dropadd.aspx
then click on "Course Add/Drop Deadlines." There is no refund for a course withdrawal; withdrawing from part, but not all of one's schedule of classes.
