Drop, Withdraw or Repeat Courses

BYU–Hawaii students that would be attending classes on campus IF the pandemic didn't happen need to contact their academic advisor. The following information IS NOT for them.

Drop Courses

Students are allowed to drop courses for a full refund during the first few days of the course in the Student Center. For students who wish to drop a course may contact Aurie Sorensen at: Please include your name, ID#, and course you wish to drop in your email. Courses dropped do not appear on the student's transcript. For specific dates see the Distance Learning Academic Calendar.

Withdraw From Courses

After the drop period is over, students are given a period of time to withdraw from the course if they desire. Withdrawals receive no refund. All students with a D- or better at the time of withdrawal will receive a "W" for the course on their transcript. If the student is failing the course at the time of withdrawal, the student will receive a "WF" on their transcript. A "W" is not calculated into the students grade point average (GPA). However a "WF" is calculated as an "F" on the student's transcript. After the withdrawal period is over, all course grades are final.

Repeating a Course

Students may repeat a course. If a student repeats a course the most recent grade received will be reflected on the student's transcript.
