Add/Drop Courses

Adding and Dropping courses prior to the first day of class

  1.  Online through Coyote Connect.
  2.  In person in the Office of Student Services or at one of the Education Centers.
  3.  By fax request, signed & dated by the student (FAX number 817-598-6205).

After the first day of a semester, students who have not previously registered for classes, will be allowed to register through the end of late registration with the assistance of an academic advisor. These dates will be listed on the online academic calendar and college catalog. There is no fee for making a class change during this time period; however, tuition charges may be adjusted which can impact the student’s tuition balance. Please refer to Weatherford College’s General Refund Policy.

Withdrawing from a Course

After the official census date, a student can formally request to be withdrawn (receive a grade of “W”) from a course by completing the Course Withdrawal Form. For Fall and Spring terms, the official census date is the 12th day of the semester. Please refer to the college calendar or speak with an academic advisor for information regarding census date as well as details regarding the last day to withdrawal. 

Course withdrawal is initiated by the student completing the Course Withdrawal form. This form is found online or can be received in Students Services. A student cannot withdraw from a course within the Coyote Connect. Course withdraw requires the signature of the instructor of record. Students taking online courses can present an email from their instructor serving as the instructor’s signature. Students receiving federal financial aid, veteran benefits, or residing in student housing are required to speak with the corresponding office to discuss the impacts of a course withdrawal. 

After the instructor of record or appropriate administrator has signed the Course Withdrawal Form, the form must be returned to Student Services for the withdraw to be completed. The withdraw documents may be mailed to Student Services at 225 College Park Drive, Weatherford, Tx 76086, faxed to 817-598-6205 or emailed to

Consequences of Withdrawals
Withdrawing from a class can affect your financial aid and cost of attendance. You will be charged an additional fee if you register for a class you previously attempted two or more times. Your instructor or an advisor also can help you understand possible consequences of withdrawing and explore alternatives.

Grade of W

A grade of “W” is GPA-neutral. “W” is notated on your transcript which does not bring in grade points (or credits). The class and W remain on your schedule and transcript. Once the W grade is filed, you stop attending the class so you can focus on the other courses in your schedule.

International Students

If you're an F-1 Visa student, reducing your course load may result in losing your legal F-1 status.


If you never attend a class for which you are enrolled, you will NOT automatically be dropped from that class for non-attendance. You are responsible for initiating and completing the withdraw process.

Processing Drops/Withdrawals

Drops/Withdraws are processed on the date all paperwork is received. Requests received after normal operating hours will be processed on the next business day.  This can impact refund availability and amounts. Please refer to the college calendar or speak with an academic advisor for more information regarding refund.

Six-Drop Limit

Students are limited to no more than six drops during their undergraduate career. The six-drop limit includes courses taken at any Texas public institution of higher education. All courses dropped after the official day of record for the semester will be included in the six-course limit unless the student withdraws from all classes, or an appropriate college official authorizes the drop as an approved drop exception.

Students reaching the limit of six drops, either at WC or with transferred hours included, will not be allowed to drop any course unless they are withdrawing from all courses.
