Are you sure you have everything required for course withdrawal? Have you read all the rules of the university? In general, withdrawal from a course is allowed in case after the regular 6-week drop date. You can drop up to 6 hours during your whole studies. In any case, you should take to your advisor and consult with them on the matter. They’ll tell you whether you have an opportunity to withdraw and help you with the process afterward. Note, that withdrawal differs from resigning mainly in the dates. However, a student uses the same form. By the way, here is a link to the withdrawal form you’ll have to fill in -

http://registrar.vt.edu/content/dam/registrar_vt_edu/documents/Updates/forms/Student-Withdrawal-Resignation-Form.pdf  You can just print it and pass to your advisor or fill it online and send it via email. In any case, you have to contact the advisor of yours.
In the beginning, you’ll see a few rules and requirements concerning course withdrawal and resignation. Read them carefully to understand what you need to do. As you’ll see, the form is simple and won’t take a lot of time to complete.

Also, you should know that there is no refund for withdrawal. So, it won’t help you to save money. This is not only a policy of course withdrawal in Virginia Tech. This is a standard rule that all higher educational establishments follow.

If you wonder where all the forms of Virginia Tech are stored, here is a link for you - https://eng.vt.edu/academics/undergraduate-students/academic-forms.html  Any academic issue you may face can be resolved with the help of these forms. All files are free to download and examine.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any personal experience with Virginia Tech course withdrawals, but there is plenty of theory that tells exactly what you need to do.

There is a system of credits at work here and a student has to reach a certain amount of them in order to complete the term. The course withdrawal policy changes the rules a bit, but you are not allowed to misuse the system. Every inquiry is viewed individually and you won’t be able to trick the system.

Speaking of the withdrawal policy, I have a very useful link - https://www.undergradcatalog.registrar.vt.edu/0809/acapolicies/grades.html  This is a page of the official website of the university that tells you everything about course withdrawal you need to know.

There is also a table of grade points and their ratings that determine the academic achievements of a student. You can read about the graduation requirements—the detailed information of what you need to achieve to finally get your degree. It includes the number of total credits and so on.

I was surprised to discover that the page also contained a few interesting facts about the pass/fail system that out mentors didn’t tell us. I advise all Virginia Tech students to read the following P/F passage to learn exactly how the system works.
I understand that course withdrawal may seem complicated for many people, but you just have to read all the rules and instructions carefully.

You should also pay attention to the course withdrawal rules concerning transfer students. They have additional policies and procedures that completely change the who withdrawal process. I think it’s an important information that a person asking about it should know. In general, transfer students have many differences in their studies compared to the regular students. So, you should uncover the Virginia Tech course withdrawal issue carefully and dwell on all aspects that may be of assistance. Being a transfer is a common case that touches many student lives.
