Withdrawal From All Classes
Any student withdrawing from Georgia Highlands College following registration must notify the Registrarís Office so that an official withdrawal may be made. This procedure also applies to veterans receiving allowance under any act of Congress and to students receiving financial aid. Students under 18 years of age are expected to secure the consent of their parents before withdrawing from the college. Withdrawals without penalty will not be permitted past the mid-point of the semester except in cases of hardship as determined by the Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs of the College.
Students must complete a Student Withdrawal Request Form, available on all campuses, to officially withdraw from all classes. Students with financial aid awards should be aware that fees may be owed if their withdrawal affects their financial aid. The official withdrawal date is so indicated by the studentís intent on the signed and dated form.
Student accounts will be refunded according to a graduated percentage scale beginning the second meeting day of classes.
Hardship withdrawals and grade appeals must be filed by the end of the academic semester immediately following the academic semester in which the withdrawal or appeal is requested.
If a student decides not to attend the college the semester for which he/she has registered and paid fees, the student must officially withdraw. Students who abandon classes without following proper procedures will receive a grade of "F" in all classes.
