Drop: An academic drop occurs when you remove yourself from a course before or during KCKCC’s tuition, fees and refund period. There are no academic consequences from this action, but there may be financial aid repercussions for this drop if you no longer meet aid qualifications. The course will show on your registration history as dropped but will not post on any unofficial or official transcripts and does not count as attempted credit.
Withdrawal: An academic withdrawal from a course occurs when you remove yourself from a course after the drop period has passed. You are financially responsible for the tuition and fees for the course. The academic consequences from this action include receiving the grade of "W" for the course, which will appear on any unofficial or official transcripts. A grade of "W" will not impact your GPA nor count as completed credit toward your degree.
