Undergraduate Regulations



A drop from a course is a formal process initiated by the student prior to the drop deadline. Students may drop on their own via OwlNet during scheduled web registration periods. During periods when web registration is closed, students must drop via written request to the Registrar’s office.

Students enrolled in courses offered through the Online Campus will be allowed to drop the course up through the first day of the second scheduled week of class. (If the scheduled course start date is Monday, the student may drop up through the end of the work day the following Monday)


Withdrawal from a course or program is a formal written process initiated by the student and received and documented by the University. As a formal academic transaction, withdrawals are formally noted on the transcript.

Withdrawal from a course or program offered by the Online College may be initiated by the student beginning after the drop deadline up through the end of the 5th scheduled week of class.

Withdrawal from a course does not constitute withdrawal from a program or disassociation from the Online College. A student who has withdrawn from a course may continue study during the next enrollment period without penalty. If a student withdrawals from a course and does not intend or expect to continue study during the next subsequent period, a program withdrawal should be initiated.

Withdrawal from a program constitutes disassociation from the Graduate College and the University. Students who have withdrawn from a program must apply for readmission to resume study. If program or degree requirements have been changed since the student’s initial enrollment, the student may be required to satisfy the requirements upon readmission.

Departure Without Withdrawal;Final grades are issued in each course for each enrolled student who has not formally withdrawn from the course. Students who terminate attendance without formally withdrawing from a course are assigned a grade of FN or FSA, depending on attendance. According to the academic policy regarding continuous enrollment, two consecutive failing grades due to nonattendance results in Academic Dismissal.
