Does the phrase 'drop out of college' mean
1. leave college (voluntarily) or
2. be removed from college (e.g for unsatisfactory grades or bad behaviour).
If the right meaning is 1., then is there any phrasal verb or colloquial expression which means 2.?
Thanks in advance.
Number 1 is the correct definition of "drop out of college".
A verb which means to remove (for bad grades etc) is to expel.
I was expelled from school.
A colloquial version is kicked out of.
I was kicked out of school.
I'm not a teacher.
