Will dropping courses affect my financial aid award?
If you receive financial aid grants or loans, you must check with the Mid's Financial Aid team before dropping courses. Dropping courses or dropping during certain time periods may cause changes to your financial aid award eligibility, requiring you to pay back some of your financial aid.
What happens if I need to drop courses after the deadline due to an extraordinary life event?
Under normal circumstances, there is a short period after courses begin, when students may drop courses from their schedule without penalty or charge. Dropping a course removes it from the student’s transcript entirely - as if it were never there. After this short drop period, students may withdraw from courses. A withdraw from a course places a “W” grade on the student’s transcript and the student is responsible for the entire cost of the course.
We understand that life, at times, can be a difficult journey, with unexpected challenges and circumstances. In response to this, the College now offers the option of a backdated drop, which removes a course, or set of courses, from a student’s record when such action is warranted based on unusual, unexpected, and extenuating circumstances. In most cases, these circumstances are out of the student's control and prevent the student from completing the courses successfully. In essence, backdated drops allow a student to drop a course (have it removed from their transcript and reverse the charge for the course) after the normal drop period.
NOTE: As with the decision to withdraw, there are a number of factors that determine whether or not a backdated drop is appropriate for a student (ex. financial aid implications, loan payback, return of funds, etc.). In some cases, receiving a backdated drop may result in the student owing money to the College. The College strongly encourages students to discuss these decisions with their Mid Mentor before proceeding.
