With the fall term now almost halfway over, you may be considering withdrawing from a course. Withdrawing from a course is a legitimate course of action and often preferable to getting a D or F grade in a course. However, a withdrawal can also impact your road to graduation.
Before you withdraw from a course, considering speaking to both your instructor and your program advisor. Your instructor may have advice on how you can improve your grade, and your program advisor can let you know how a withdrawal will impact your academic record. Remember that some students require permission to withdraw from courses.
