Course Drops and Adds
Students can drop a course or withdraw with a grade of W or WF via Self Service Carolina. Deadlines for dropping a course without receiving a W and WF, as well as refund dates, are determined by the part of term to which a course is attached.
Every part of term during a semester has a drop/add deadline.
How To Determine Which Part Of Term Your Class Is In
In Self Service Carolina, view your Concise Student Schedule located on the Registration tab of the Student section.
Where To Find W, WF, And Refund Deadlines
View the Parts of Term Dates and Deadlines located in the Academics section of my.sc.edu.
Should you wish to withdraw from a course with a grade of W or WF, a grade of W or WF will be recorded on your transcript. A grade of W will not be calculated in your GPA, but will be recorded on your permanent record.
Courses dropped after the WF deadline will be recorded as a WF on your permanent record. The grade of WF is treated as an F in the calculation of your GPA. The WF deadline will vary based on the part of term for your class.
Exceptions may be requested to the assignment of a grade of “WF” when there is a verifiable,
documented reason. A Request for Assignment of Grade of “W” for Extenuating Circumstances form must be initiated by the student’s Academic Dean and be approved by the course
If you receive any financial aid loans or scholarships, you should contact the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships and speak with a counselor prior to withdrawing from courses.
