If you are thinking of withdrawing from your courses or program:

Withdrawing from a credit course or program

If you choose to withdraw from a program or course, you need to follow the formal withdrawal procedure listed below. Simply not attending a course does not mean you have withdrawn from it. Visit the Important Dates page for a listing of deadlines. 

"Drop" deadline vs. "withdrawal" deadline

  • The drop deadline is the final day to leave a course with a full refund of tuition and most fees. After the drop deadline, you will generally not be eligible for a refund of your tuition or fees.
  • After the drop deadline is the withdrawal deadlineThis is the last day to leave a course with a "W" (withdrawn) grade. Leaving a course after this date will result in failing grade of "F." You cannot withdraw from a course after it has finished.

How to drop or withdraw from a course

Most students can drop or withdraw from a course through MyBVC. If you cannot remove yourself from a course through MyBVC, contact Registrar Services at registrar@bowvalleycollege.ca or 403-410-1400 for assistance.
