Important Information for Students

Student Withdrawal Reminder
Students who must permanently leave a class are reminded to officially withdraw through the Student Records Office.  Withdrawals may be made by:

3.     Faxing to Student Records at 253.589.5852
4.     Submitting online to Student Records at www.cptc.edu/register during the first five days of the quarter or online at www.cptc.edu/drop after the fifth day of the quarter
Failure to officially withdraw from a class may result in:
