Six Drop Limit on Course Withdrawals
Students enrolled for the first time in college as of the fall of 2007 or after, at any Texas public college or university are limited to six course drops during their academic career. This policy does not apply to courses dropped prior to census day, total withdrawals, dual credit courses, developmental courses, drops from private or out-of-state institutions, and courses dropped during the three week mini term.
Drops beyond the maximum of six may be allowed if students can show good cause such as severe illness, active duty military service, or work obligations beyond the student’s control. Exceptions are granted by the Vice President of Student Services or designee. Once the six course drop limit has been reached grades will be assigned. Drop totals are recorded on the official transcript. Contact the Admissions Office for information about the drop exception procedure.
