COVID-19 Updates & Resources

For Immediate Release:

Dear Student:

We wanted to share some important updated information. The Spring Semester Excused Withdrawal (EW) deadline has been revised and is now retroactive to March 16, 2020. The deadline for submitting is May 13, 2020. The form is available on the IVC Admissions and Records website.

The California Community Colleges State Chancellor’s Office has authorized that a student may withdraw from classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If a student wants to withdraw, the student will receive an Excused Withdrawal (EW) on their transcript and a refund of enrollment fees. The EW symbol does not count in the calculation of probation or dismissal and is not counted as an enrollment attempt for purposes of course repetition. Students who are withdrawing because of the current crisis are strongly encouraged to meet with a counselor as it may impact the completion of their program, Financial Aid or Veteran Education Benefit status.

Once a grade has been issued at the end of the semester, the student will not be able to withdraw.
Once again, the Excused Withdrawal (EW) is retroactive to March 16, 2020 and the deadline for submitting is May 13, 2020.

Thank you.
