EW (Excused Withdrawal) for Fall 2020:
Updates have been considered per CCCCO Executive Order 2020-10 of March 20, 2020, Section 55024(e) (1). An EW can be assigned to a student for reasons due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
EW requests DURING THE TERM: During the term, withdrawals resulting in an EW can be assigned if approved by the Vice President of Student Services or Dean of Student Services. Approval of an EW during the term will be considered for students facing extenuating circumstances due to the Covid-19 pandemic or natural disaster, or other criteria under which and EW can be assigned. To be recommended for an EW during the term, a counselor or instructor will need to submit the CARE incident report and explicitly state why they are recommending you (the student) for an EW during the term.
EW requests AFTER-TERM (Petition for EW after the term ends): Students will have the option to petition for an EW after the term ends and grades are posted. All students must meet with a counselor prior to submitting an EW petition.
Students interested in pursuing this option will need to submit a petition along with documentation of extenuating circumstances due to the COVID-19 pandemic or natural disaster or other criteria under which and EW can be assigned. Submission of a petition does not guarantee approval of the EW request.
If the EW petition is approved, the appropriate instructor(s) and Division Dean will be contacted to submit a completed grade change form.
