Wayne State College


Adds, Drops, and Withdrawals

Adding or Dropping a Class

Please refer to the academic calendar for the specific dates. 

The general rule to add or drop classes in the spring or fall is the first week of classes. You are still able to withdraw from a course until approximately two weeks after midterm grades have posted. However, there is no tuition/fee adjustment for individual class drops that occur after the drop/add period (first week of regular session and first two days of shorter sessions).

Eight-week, five-week, and three-week sessions have different timelines. Please review the academic calendar carefully for these classes. Call Records and Registration at 402-375-7239 if you have any questions.

Withdrawal From the College 

All withdrawals from the college must be made officially through the Office of Student Services.

Grades of “W” will be recorded for all students who officially withdraw from the college prior to the beginning of the final examination period. Official withdrawal from the college after this time will be permitted only with the approval of the Vice President of Student Services. Grades of “F” will be given to any student who leaves without officially withdrawing, and a refund will be denied.

An application form for withdrawal may be obtained from the Office of Student Services.

Tuition and fee adjustments for a complete withdrawal from school will be determined by the Student Financial Services office based on the schedule below. There will be no tuition and fee adjustment for dropping individual classes after the last day to drop/add.

Adjustment Percentages Fall and Spring Semesters Summer Sessions
100% adjustment During weeks 1 and 2 During days 1 and 2
50% adjustment During weeks 3 and 4 During days 3 and 4
25% adjustment During weeks 5-8 N/A

*Financial aid may be reduced for a complete withdrawal from school using the federal Return of Title IV calculation or due to a reduction in academic load.
