If a student does not properly withdraw from a course before the end of the drop period, it will show up on their academic record as an “N” grade (which stands for ‘never attended’). This means that even if the student never attended class and did no work, they will still get an F for the course and this could have serious consequences for any future federal aid applications.
Not attending a course after the drop period does not only affect SAP concerning financial aid; it also affects a student’s cumulative GPA because all courses taken count towards it regardless of whether or not they were completed successfully. Even if students are passing classes at present but have low GPAs due to past N grades, they may be ineligible for scholarships or other awards that require high GPA thresholds.
In addition, many universities have strict requirements regarding when students can graduate: while some may allow students to complete courses late and apply them towards graduation credit, others may require that all courses are completed within certain timeframes in order to count towards graduation requirements. Without meeting these timelines and having passed all required courses, students will be unable to graduate on time with their peers – thereby impacting both their long-term career opportunities as well as educational ambition goals such as continuing studies at higher levels of education or pursuing advanced degrees elsewhere.
Moreover, failing to withdraw from a course correctly could result in unnecessary costs incurred; tuition fees already paid would remain charged despite no corresponding services rendered whatsoever shortly afterwards – often leading into debt issues which then make it more difficult qualify financially again during subsequent terms ahead later down line directly relatedly too possibly thereby..
