    "dropped out from/dropped out"?

    He dropped out from university ten years ago.

    No one forced him out, the decision was his. Shouldn't I exclude the word "from," please?

    Re: "dropped out from/dropped out"?

    You should exclude "from" but you need to replace it with "of".

    He dropped out of university ...
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
