Hey guys, long story short, I am pursuing a degree Nursing, I have around one year left, I have all the core NUR classes yet to take, three more bios and one more math, I signed up for summer classes, thinking online wouldn't be that much different then person-to-person, I was so wrong, the online learning due to covid 19 wasn't for me, AT ALL, I withdrew from my classes this summer, (bio and mth) Question is I know this won't affect my gpa which is around 3.3 but I'm worried that 2 W's won't look that good, and as well as my financial aid for my upcoming semesters, I was told by my advisor it wouldn't affect my financial aid status but I will owe the college some money, I guess this goes without saying but, how big of a deal is 2 W's in one semester? NOTE: These are my first ever withdrawals and I've been there for almost a year. and how much will I own the college? Thanks Thanks

    Two W grades because of emergency online instruction due to COVID-19 probably won't be a problem. This is a strange time to be living through, and every educational institution is fully aware of how this has affected students. Online teaching and learning is not the same experience as face-to-face instruction. So work with your advisor and the financial aid office so that everything that can be done to sort out your aid can get sorted out.

    Chances are that some of your classes will still be online in the fall. Your CC probably has virtual tutoring, and your instructors certainly have virtual office hours. Take advantage of all of that. You want to finish your summer classes with good grades, and be ready for the ones you take in the fall.

    Wishing you all the best!
