Drop Deadine

If your student signed up for dual credit and decides to drop the dual credit (this does NOT affect the high school credit), the deadline to do so is March 15, 2017. This is the last day to drop the class with a 100% refund to avoid having the class appear on a MCC-Maple Woods transcript. Students must have completed a Drop Form, which is also located in the Counseling Office, and must be returned to Ms. Chambers by that date. 

Withdrawal Date

If you signed up for dual credit and wish to withdraw from the dual credit portion of the course, the withdrawal date is April 17, 2017. Tuition will still be owed for the dual credit, and a grade of "W" will appear on the MCC-Maple Woods transcript. To withdraw from the dual credit, students must complete a Withdrawal Form, which is also located in the Counseling Office‚Äč, and must be returned by the withdrawal date to Ms. Chambers in the Counseling Office.
