Impact of Dropping Online AP History Class?

Question: I am going to be a Senior in August and one of the classes I took online was AP History. I have not finished the class and I am debating on dropping the class. I want to know how bad the withdrawal will effect my chances of getting into college. Will it keep me from being able to get into a University?

Dropping this class will definitely not keep you out of college entirely and may have no impact at all on your college-admission outcomes. However, if you are applying to highly selective schools and have a lack of rigorous history classes on your transcript (or a lack of AP classes overall), the fact that you are withdrawing from this one could hurt you. It definitely won't be a complete deal-breaker, but it might have some effect on your college verdicts.
