A withdrawal will result in a grade of ‘W’ on your CF transcript. While it does not affect GPA, it does reflect an unsuccessful attempt at a course which may affect financial aid eligibility later on.

Students are limited to a certain number of W’s before they are no longer eligible to continue in Dual Enrollment. Please check with your counselor or with Dual Enrollment staff

If I earn a D or F in a course but my other grades are high, can I continue in the dual enrollment program?

No, you will no longer be able to participate in the dual enrollment program.
