We also understand that you may decide to pause your attendance. In this case, when you drop your course(s) you are able to elect an Excused Withdrawal (EW). The deadline to elect an EW for Spring 2020 courses is July 15, 2020. After July 15, you still have one year from the end of your spring 2020 courses to complete an Extenuating Circumstances Petition for an EW grade. The deadline to receive a refund for courses dropped with an EW is May 15, 2020. 


What are the steps to elect an EW? 

If you wish to drop your course(s), please proceed to do so on WebAdvisor or EduNav and send an email from your RCCD student email account to​, or by requesting the following: 

1.    The specific course or courses you wish to drop; AND 

2.    A Withdrawal (W) grade to be modified to Excused Withdrawal (EW). EW does not impact your academic standing or repeatability of the course(s); AND 

3.    A refund for the dropped course(s) will be processed by staff. You can verify the refund amount by checking WebAdvisor’s Account Summary for accuracy. Please be mindful that it may take a few weeks before actual refunds are generated. 

If you have questions, please check with your Counselor before making these decisions.
