  YOUR STUDIES

If you’re struggling in your coursework or feeling overwhelmed by studying, before you withdraw, reach out to your instructor to discuss your difficulties and your progress.

Talk with an academic advisor to see what your options may be, including staying in the class, withdrawing, requesting an incomplete or taking the class pass/fail, if that’s an option for that specific course.

  YOUR FINANCES

If you’re considering withdrawing because of financial concerns or due to a change in your family’s household income, Kent State Stark is here to help and can find possible solutions and options for your situation. 

Withdrawing from a course can impact your aid for the current term, could cause you to have a balance due, and can even impact your eligibility for aid in the future. It's important to always check with Student Financial Aid before you make any schedule adjustments.
