Some times, and for very good reasons, a student is not able to finish a class, and needs to withdraw from the class.
Through week 12:
A grade of W (withdrawn) will be recorded for anyone who formally withdraws by meeting with the instructor and filling out a withdraw form.
A grade of F will be recorded for anyone who simply does not come to class any more.
It is important to realize that for any one withdrawing from the class, the difference between earning a W on the official class record or earning an F is the process of formally withdrawing
After week 12:
Anyone withdrawing will receive a grade based on all assignments, including those missed.
Extra credit may be earned if your grade is currently a D or below.
