ONLINE CLASS WITHDRAWAL POLICY: If you are taking online classes via another KCTCS college you may email your instructor and request permission to withdraw.  If the instructor approves, print off the email and that will serve as their signature. You may also forward the email from the instructor to admissions and request to drop the class via your student email account.

It is advisable to check with Financial Aid for potential consequences of withdrawing.


A student requesting to withdraw from ALL classes at MCTC must complete a total withdrawal form to be officially withdrawn from the academic semester.   Students may complete and submit an on-line total withdrawal by going to link below or complete a total withdrawal paper form with an admission and financial aid counselor.  The total withdrawal paper form does not require faculty signatures but an admission and financial aid counselor must sign before the record’s office personnel will process.  Failure to officially withdraw from MCTC can result in academic and financial difficulties for students.
