ADVISING FAQs

What is the difference between dropping a course and withdrawing from a course?
When you drop a course, there is no record on your transcript. You can drop a course during the first 2-4 days of class depending on whether the course is a full semester or a condensed class.

Withdrawals from courses appear on your transcript permanently, but do not impact your GPA. They do, however, count as an attempt. Greenville Technical College gives a student three attempts to successfully complete a course, so do not treat withdrawals lightly.

If you have questions about whether to drop a class, meet with an academic advisor.
