Withdrawal Process

Students have the right to drop or withdraw from a course, or courses, during an active semester by the designated deadline. Please see the academic calendar for deadlines. During the late registration period before a semester begins and once a semester has started, students must submit an add/drop form to the registration office. The form can be submitted by dropping it off in person at the DC location, faxing it to the number on the form, or by emailing it as an attachment. (PDF attachments are preferred).

Beginning the fourth week of the classes, students are no longer dropped from courses by request, they are withdrawn from courses by request. This results in a “W” on the transcript for the corresponding course. The process for withdrawing from classes is the same as detailed above, including consideration of any deadlines on the academic calendar.

Students may be eligible for a full or partial credit/refund depending on when the drop/withdrawal occurs, either before or during the semester. Please see the Tuition and Fees page for the latest and older refund schedules (please scroll to the bottom of the page).

If you have any questions about dropping or withdrawing from a course, or courses, please contact the AAP Registration office by phone (202-452-1952) or by email.
