Withdrawing - February 22nd 2010, 05:19 PM

I'm in college and I was thinking of withdrawing from a French class. Is withdrawing really that bad?

Hey Kayla, withdrawing and dropping are two different things, if you drop before the school's drop deadline then it doesn't matter. Withdrawing doesn't have any consequences as long as you still have enough credits and it isn't required for your major (since you'd just have to take it again anyway). If you withdraw the course will show up on your transcript with a W next to it, it's up to the person viewing it how to interpret it.

Alot of it depends on when you drop a class. I've dropped a couple classes near the beginning of semesters simply due to schedule changes, and it didn't affect me at all because I dropped them before the "Final day to drop a class w/ refund" set by my school. It's best to ask your school's registrars office to be sure how it will show up.

You have to weigh your options; if you're going to fail the class, you should withdraw, but if you're just--not feeling up to it but could still do ok, I would suck it up and get it done. It's kinda of a game.. you have to decide which loss is worse.

If you're failing the class or if you are so unmotivated that you may be failing soon, then dropping before the deadline is the best option. It may not be the most eloquent way to go but it's better than having a fail on your transcript.

Well the deadline has already passed to drop the class. I'm taking French, which is not required for my major and I'm not passing. I keep going back to my Spanish instead, which is making it almost impossible to learn this language. Also, my teacher is just moving way too fast for me. If I do withdraw, I'd take up Spanish next semester...
