Withdrawals

Withdrawal from an Individual Course

A student may withdraw from any course or courses by submitting a Change of Schedule form to the Office of the Registrar on or before the last day to withdraw from an individual course, as published in the Academic Calendar.

Students who withdraw from a course or courses on or before the last day to withdraw from an individual course are assigned a grade of “W”. Failure to attend class does not constitute a withdrawal from that course or courses. For withdrawals done beginning fall 2012, students are limited to a maximum of two (2) withdrawals per course, up to a maximum of five (5) courses during the student’s academic career. Upon a third (3) attempt in a single course, the student is not permitted to withdraw from the course and must receive a grade for the course.

A student who does not officially withdraw from a course or courses will be assigned a final grade in each course in which he or she was enrolled during the semester in question. Withdrawing from a course or courses may affect a student’s financial aid status, will count toward the tuition surcharge threshold, and may affect the student’s progress toward degree completion.

Students considering withdrawing from a courses or courses should consult their faculty advisor or academic unit advisor and the Office of Student Financial Aid.

Withdrawal from the University

Any student who is officially registered for classes and who wishes to withdraw from the University must complete the withdrawal process by the last day to withdraw from the university as published in the academic calendar.

Students who withdraw from the University prior to the published withdrawal deadline shall receive a “W” in all classes in which they were enrolled. Failure to attend classes does not constitute a withdrawal from the University. A student who does not officially withdraw from the University will be assigned the final grade earned in each course in which he or she was enrolled during the semester in question.

Withdrawal applications by students who have a pending judicial charge will not be processed by the Registrar. Pending judicial charges must be cleared before a student may officially withdraw from the University.

Withdrawal from the University may have significant academic and/or financial aid implications. Students are strongly encouraged to seek advisement by their academic advisor or academic unit and financial aid officer before completing the withdrawal process.
