Withdrawal Policy
A student who finds it necessary to withdraw from a course, courses, or from the college must initiate the withdrawal process by contacting the instructor of each course and declaring his or her intent to withdraw. The instructor will then submit the necessary information to the Registration and Student Records Services Division via the online withdrawal form.

If the student cannot get in contact with his/her instructor, he/she can follow these steps:

  1. Log in to my.waketech.edu with your Wake Tech username and password.
  2. From the Academics drop-down menu, select Course Withdrawals.
  3. Your current list of classes will show; select the Withdraw Reason for the course(s) you want to withdraw from, and click Submit.
  4. Your request will be sent to your instructor; once your request is complete you will receive an email.
