Academic Policy Details
Withdrawal From A Course
Students who wish to withdraw from a course must consult with their academic advisor and complete the official schedule change form that is available in the Office of the Registrar. Students may withdraw from a course during the first 11 weeks of the semester; exact dates are shown in the online academic calendar. A grade of WP will be entered if, at the time of withdrawal, the student is earning a passing grade in the class (D or above). A grade of WF will be entered if, at the time of the withdrawal, the student is not earning a passing grade in the course. A grade of "W" may be used for withdrawing for medical reasons. Neither the W, WP or WF grades count in the student's semester or cumulative GPA. The withdrawal is not official until the paperwork is processed through the Office of the Registrar. A student who simply stops going to class or who fails to process the withdrawal form according to the deadline will receive a letter grade based upon the entire semester's work.
These policies apply to the Semester Program/On Campus students only. Graduate College Students will need to consult the Graduate College Bulletin.
