Consider consequences of dropping classes before taking action!
A question that we often receive this time of year is whether a student-athlete can drop a class(es) without a “penalty.” They might wish to do this because of second thoughts about their college choice, or due to injury or illness.
If your athlete has already started attending their college classes this Fall as a full-time enrolled student, withdrawing from their classes will, in most cases, negatively impact their eligibility now, and also in the future at their current college or at a new college that they may transfer to.
Dropping a course later in the term to avoid a failing grade that will hurt the GPA may be OK, but encourage them to finish the semester or quarter before they withdraw or transfer to another college so that they don’t lose all their credits for this term.
To discuss a potential withdrawal situation and how it could impact your athlete, schedule a confidential Eligibility Consult online or contact us at 913-766-1235.
