How to eWithdrawal Online

Lawson State has an eWithdrawal process for students struggling academically.  Students can withdraw from any course online (without academic penalty) within a select period of time designated by the college and printed with the Academic Calendar.   Students should NEVER use the withdraw process as their first option.  Rather, withdrawing should be used as a last option only.  See your advisor and instructor (always) before withdrawing.

Adding and Dropping courses is different.  Students add and drop courses during the scheduling process.  Click on the link below to learn more about the eWithdrawal and Adding/Dropping process at Lawson State and watch the tutorial below.
