Course Withdrawals

There are times when students find that they need to withdraw from a course during a semester. If the need to withdraw is caused by Active Duty Military issues, students should consult the Student Military Service Policy. Otherwise the following policy covers the process for withdrawing from a course.

Students have until the 50th day of the semester to withdraw from courses.  When a student withdraws from a course that course remains on the transcript but the student receives a grade of W. W grades do not impact the student’s GPA, but there are other factors to consider. For example, if withdrawing from a course causes the student to drop below full-time hours for the term, he/she becomes ineligible to remain in campus housing, athletic and/or scholarship eligibility can be affected, and degree plans can be disrupted.  Students should always consult with an academic advisor prior to withdrawing from a course. To initiate a Course Withdrawal a student must use the Course Withdrawal Form. The form with all appropriate signatures is then submitted to the Registar's Office.

The last day to withdraw from courses is listed in the Academic Calendar
