Dropping Courses:

To drop a TWU dual credit course, students must:

  • Receive approval from their high school counselor 
  • Submit a TWU Drop Form  with all required signatures
  • Turn in the form to the TWU admissions office by the drop deadline. Completed forms can be faxed to 940-898-3081.

Dropping the TWU dual credit course at the high school or rearranging a student’s high school schedule does NOT constitute dropping or withdrawing from TWU. All charges and grades will still apply unless the course(s) have been dropped officially through Texas Woman’s University.
