A student may withdraw from a course after the end of the change of course period until a week after mid-terms. The final date for official withdrawal is published in the academic calendar. A withdrawal is not official until the withdrawal slip, completely signed, is returned to the Enrollment Services/Registrar’s Office and signed by the Registrar. No authorization will be given for withdrawal after this deadline. Resident students withdrawing from all courses are also required to obtain the signature of the Director of Residence Life.

If a student officially withdraws from a course by the withdrawal deadline, a grade of withdrawal (W) is automatically assigned.

The dates for withdrawal for academic purposes differ significantly from the withdrawal dates to receive a refund of fees paid. Please see Withdrawal Credit section under Refund Policy.
