To make this decision, you must understand how each action affects information in several modules: Scheduling, Grades, Faculty Access for the Web, Attendance, and Report Cards and Transcripts.

For instructions on how to perform these actions, refer to How to withdraw, drop, or transfer a student. (BB134926)

  • Drop: Dropping a student removes associated grades, skill ratings, and attendance entries for the student in the class for the term.
  • Withdraw: Withdrawing a student leaves the associated grades, skill ratings, and attendance entries for the student in the class for the term.
  • Transfer: Transferring a student leaves the associated grades, skill ratings, and attendance entries for the student in the original class section.

    Note: You can transfer students only between class sections of the same course (such as from Govt-03 to Govt-06). To move a student to a section of a different course, you must drop the student from the first class and enroll him in the other one.
Refer to the following table for more detailed information about the effects of withdraw, drop, and transfer:
