Drop a Class, Withdraw from a Class or Change Grade Method

If your situation does not improve, you could:
- drop a class
- withdraw from a class
- change the grade method
It is important to understand the differences between these options, the deadlines for each and their consequences.
Before making a decision, you should connect with your academic advisor or an advisor in Warrior Success Center to make sure this choice is right for you.

Learn about Academic Status
Being in good academic standing simply means that you meet or exceed the minimum requirements for grade point average (GPA) and course completion rate.
If you have fallen below the minimum, Advising Services can help you understand your academic status and work with you to improve your success.
If this is the case, please meet with an academic advisor to discuss your situation. An advisor can help you learn about strategies and resources to get back on track.
Improve Your Academic Success
When it comes to academic success, what works for another student may be different than what works for you.
This is why WSU offers a variety of services, resources and course options designed to meet the unique academic needs of each student.
