Withdrawal from the University
If you register for courses and then decide to withdraw from the University, contact the Office of the Registrar or complete the Withdrawal Form to initiate the withdrawal procedure. You will need to provide a signed statement. "A student who voluntarily leaves the University at any time without completing the prescribed withdrawal procedures will be considered as still registered and will receive an F in each course in which enrolled."
If you withdraw during the first eight days of the semester, only the date of withdrawal will appear on the transcript. After the eighth day and through the tenth week, you will receive a "W" for each course. Dates and actions are prorated for courses meeting less than the full term.
After the tenth week you may not withdraw unless the reasons for withdrawal are serious illness, personal duress or are clearly beyond your control. After the tenth week of classes, requests to withdraw must be directed to the Student Academic Advising Center, 103 SSC. If you are permitted to withdraw after the tenth week, grades of "W" will be assigned to your courses. Courses that end prior to your withdrawal are an exception. You will receive grades for courses completed prior to your withdrawal.
