1.19 Withdrawals


The official course withdrawal period begins after the end of the program adjustment period. The last day to officially withdraw from the semester is noted on the academic calendar.

During the fall and spring semesters, a student may officially withdraw from course(s) after the third week of the semester and on or before the published withdrawal deadline. During the summer session, the withdrawal period begins at the end of the second week of the session.

A grade of “W” (Withdrawal) appears on the transcript for courses withdrawn from. When a student drops a course(s) prior to or during the first three weeks of the semester, the student is considered not to have been enrolled in the course. Thus, no entry of the course will be made on the student’s transcript for that course.

Withdrawal Procedure

An official withdrawal is accomplished by submitting a Withdrawal Form to the Office of Academic Affairs, after the third week of classes, and on or before the withdrawal deadline.

Withdrawals must be approved by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. No student will be granted a withdrawal after the withdrawal deadline, unless special permission is granted by the Academic Standing Committee, based on a student appeal.

All summer school deadlines are proportionate to the regular semester calendar.
