  • About Course Withdrawals

    All course withdrawal forms must be submitted to the Office of Registration and Records by the appropriate deadlines. Please read below for more information about the withdrawal process.

    - As a first semester freshman, your course withdrawal request must be reviewed and approved by your academic advisor before submission. More information on sending your request for approval will be given upon completion of this form.

    - The Withdrawal Period runs from week five to week ten of a regular (spring and/or fall) semester. Departmental permission is not required during this period. When a withdrawal form is submitted, a notation of “W” will appear on the permanent record.

    - The Late Withdrawal Period runs from week eleven to the Friday before the last week of classes. The student must provide the department chairperson with appropriate documentation to support the request for withdrawal. The signature of the department chairperson is required before the withdrawal is filed by the Office of Registration and Records. When officially withdrawn, the student will receive a “W” on the permanent record.

    - Failure to submit a withdrawal form by the appropriate deadline will result in a final grade as determined by the grading policy of the course. No withdrawals will be permitted after the late withdrawal period.

    - Students must complete at least 2/3 of all courses attempted to remain eligible for federal financial aid. For questions, please contact the Compliance Office in Academic Advisement.
