First Year Academy

Are you transferring to a 4-year school? Wake Tech’s First Year Academy (FYA) is dedicated to promoting student success by teaching strategies that help students achieve their educational goals. The e-newsletter will contain fun facts and tips from our devoted faculty as well as submissions from students.

FYA Student Success Tip:
Not sure how a withdrawal impacts your GPA or financial aid eligibility? Read on to learn more about the withdrawal process.

What is a withdrawal?
Once the deadline for dropping a course passes, a student can initiate a withdrawal or be withdrawn from a course for various reasons. The date on which the withdrawal occurs can impact a student’s GPA or financial aid eligibility.

When is the deadline to withdraw from a course for the Fall 2018 semester?
Knowing important academic deadlines is imperative to student success. Since Wake Tech offers 8 and 16-week session courses, a student should consult Wake Tech’s online calendar for withdrawal deadlines.

How will withdrawing from a course impact my GPA or financial aid eligibility?
If a student withdraws or is withdrawn from a course before the published deadline, a “W” will be recorded on the transcript. A “W” grade is not factored into a student’s GPA but may impact financial aid eligibility.

If a student withdraws or is withdrawn from a course after the published deadline, a “WF” will be recorded on the transcript. A “WF” functions the same way as an “F” in GPA calculations. It will negatively impact a student’s GPA and may impact financial aid eligibility. For more information on Wake Tech’s withdrawal policy, visit the College Catalog.

Note: FYA Faculty are here to support your success! Should issues arise that prevent you from being successful in an ACA course, please consult with your instructor.

What is an Ombuds!?

What is an Ombuds!?
An Ombuds is an impartial resource for students, faculty, staff, and administrators. The Ombuds’ function is to help visitors to the office find options for addressing concerns, resolving conflicts, and handling a variety of institutional issues as they arise, in a confidential and informal manner.

The Ombuds Office is a place where all are welcome. It supplements but does not replace formal college channels for problem-solving.  Retaliation for visiting the Ombuds is prohibited.

Visit the Ombuds Office – on Main Campus (PE 131) or Northern Wake Campus (NF 301)
