COVID-19 Excused Withdrawal

If you need to drop one or more of your classes as a result of the State of Emergency during the pandemic, please complete and submit the COVID-19 Request for Excused Withdrawal.  No additional documentation is required.  You will be dropped with an Excused Withdrawal (EW).  An EW will not affect your academic probation status or towards the permitted number of withdrawals/attempts.  The EW may affect other benefits such as Financial Aid, Veterans, Sponsorship, Athletics, etc.  It is recommended that you contact these programs to understand the ramifications of this request.


Regarding Refunds:  Santiago Canyon College will not be processing refunds like we did in Spring 2020 for EW drops due to COVID-19.  We are still waiting on clarification from the California Community College Chancellor's Office (CCCCO).  If and when the CCCCO guidelines make it clear that we can process refunds, you will automatically be notified based on your EW status and a refund will be processed.
