Read Before Withdrawing

  • Before a student withdrawals from a class, you are required to speak with a student services advisor. Withdrawing from a class has financial and academic implications.
  • You may not use MyNOVA to withdraw from a course after the first 60% of the session since that action would result in you automatically receiving a grade of F.
  • The last date you may drop a course and receive a refund is indicated on the "Important Dates" page in the Schedule of Classes or in the Academic Calendar. No refunds will be made after the specified dates. If you drop a course during the refund period, the course will be eliminated from your schedule, so no grade will be posted.
  • The last date you may receive a grade of W is when you drop a course between the last date for refunds and within the first 60% of a session. The specific dates are listed in the "Important Dates" page in the Schedule of Classes or in the Academic Calendar.
