Dropping/Withdraw a Class

Student Responsibility

It is the Student’s Responsibility to submit the completed drop/withdraw form to the Registrar’s Office.  Drop/withdraw forms should be submitted using the instructions listed below. Your request to drop/withdraw will be processed as of the date the request is received in the Registrar’s office.  Incomplete forms will not be accepted or processed by the Registrar's Office.  It is the responsibility of the student to ensure all required information is provided on the form, and is submitted to the Registrar's Office by the deadline.

What is the difference between dropping and withdrawing?

Withdrawing is where a student wishes to drop ALL of their courses for a current or future semester.  The student will drop to zero hours for the semester in which they are withdrawing.

  • Please note: Depending on the date of the withdraw, students MAY BE financially responsible for a portion or all of the charges on their account.  Please visit the Business Office website to view the University's Refund Policy for dropping and withdrawing from classes.

Dropping means a student wishes to drop one or multiple courses, but remain enrolled in at least one hour for the current semester.  

Not attending A&M-Texarkana?

Prior to the 1st class day of the semester: students who will not be attending Texas A&M University-Texarkana can email registrar@tamut.edu prior to the start of the semester to withdraw from their courses for the semester.  Withdrawing prior to the start of the semester may prevent students from being financially responsible for their courses.

Start of the semester and forward: Once the semester has started, students who will not be attending A&M-Texarkana and wish to drop/withdraw ALL courses for the semester, MUST submit the drop/withdraw form to the Registrar's Office in order to officially withdraw from the university. If a student does not properly withdraw from the university, they can be held academically and financially responsible for the classes for which they were enrolled.  To ensure 100% refund of tuition and fees, students must withdraw prior to the first class day of the semester.

Drop course(s) through Web for Students

Through Late Registration students can drop individual courses* through Web for Students.  Students will need their student ID (CWID) and PIN to access this system; use the options in the action pull-down list through Web for Students.

*Students CANNOT DROP/WITHDRAW from ALL classes through Web for Students.  Once financial aid has applied to student accounts (approximately 10 days before the beginning of the semester), students will be prevented from dropping all courses.  Students who wish to drop all courses or withdraw from the university, will have to email the Registrar's Office at registrar@tamut.edu and/or submit the drop/withdraw form.
