How to Drop

To drop a class there are two options available:

1.  Online through PiratesNet


2.  In person at the Enrollment Services Office (Student Services Building)

When dropping via PiratesNet please log in between 6:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. Be sure to select the correct class from your schedule, then make sure to press submit in order to save your change. If you choose to drop in person in the Enrollment Services Office, picture identification is required. Please refer to your MJC Class schedule for the drop dates and deadlines for each of your classes.

  • Last Day to Drop without a "W"

Students have the first two weeks or census date (whichever comes first) to drop without a "W" on their academic record. Students are encouraged to print their class schedule; the dates are printed on the class schedule in accordance with each class – this is particularly important for summer and short-term classes.

If a student drops a full-term course within the first two weeks or the census point, whichever comes first, no notation will be recorded on the student's permanent record. If a student drops a full-term class after the end of the first two weeks or the census point, which ever comes first through the 14th week (or by 75% of the class, whichever is less) a notation of "W" will be recorded.

Please Note: If you owe fees to the college for the current or previous term you may be blocked from dropping a class(es) until you have a zero balance. If the last day to drop your class has passed you will not be able to drop your class(es) from your schedule.
