Office or through the form located within WebAdvisor, the student is
authorizing IVCC to remove him/her from the course. Entering the student ID
number serves as the studentís electronic signature. IVCC has the right to
rescind a withdrawal in cases of academic dishonesty or at the instructorís
Students should be aware of the impact of a withdrawal on full-time status for insurance purposes and for financial aid. It is highly recommended that students meet with their instructor or with a counselor before withdrawing from a class to discuss if a withdrawal is the best course of action for that particular student.
More detailed information is available at www.ivcc.edu/admissions and selecting the menu item for Withdrawals on the left side of the page.
