Dropping or Withdrawing from Class & Financial Aid

Pima Community College understands that unexpected events occur that may cause a student to drop or withdraw from some or all of his/her courses. Before dropping or withdrawing, it is important students consider how this change in credits will affect any financial aid awards they expect to receive.

It is important to consider how this action may impact prerequisite sequences, graduation timeline and future financial aid eligibility which is tied to satisfactory academic progress. Your student loan deferment status may also be affected. Contact your loan servicer to make payment arrangements (if needed) and avoid default.

Students must be aware of the proper procedure for withdrawing from classes and the financial consequences of withdrawing or stopping attendance.  Questions on how (or if) you should withdraw need to be addressed with an academic advisor.
