Students finding it necessary to withdraw from the University are required to submit a completed withdrawal form. No student will be allowed to withdraw from the University after the eighth week, except for compelling and verifiable circumstances, in which case the student must obtain the permission of an appropriate dean. A WD will appear on the student's official transcript for all courses the student was enrolled in. Unauthorized withdrawal from the University can result in the assignment of failing (F) grades in all courses.
A withdrawal becomes official when the Registrar has approved it. Students may get the proper forms from the Registrar's Office. The Withdrawals Forms will include instructions regarding other University offices to contact, such as Financial Aid, the Student Financial Services Office and Student Life. Contact with the Office of the Financial Aid is especially important if financial support has been granted that semester.
Termination of enrollment, at any time other than upon graduation or suspension, is contingent upon a signed official withdrawal form submitted by the student. A student wanting to withdraw should discuss plans to withdraw with his or her academic advisor and the dean of the Graduate School and Research. Further information will be given at that time. All charges and refunds are based on the date the withdrawal is received in the Registrar's Office and should, in all cases, be made before the student leaves campus. Withdrawals will not be accepted after the last day of classes.
Withdrawal from individual courses shall be unrestricted for the first four calendar weeks of a semester. WP or WF grades will be given for withdrawals after the first four weeks of the semester.
