Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Can you withdraw from a class this late in the semester? And how would you go about getting it done?

A: Dear Overwhelmed Frosh,

Deadline to withdraw with a "W" on the transcript was October 6th. This means nothing except you have a "W" there instead of a grade.

If you do it now, you have to petition to drop the class but it must be for non-academic reasons. (Petitions Office: 422-6570). It sounds like yours is definitely for an academic reason, so I wouldn't hold your breath.
