Course Withdrawal

To withdraw from a course, a student must submit a Change of Registration Form to the Records Office or contact the appropriate department office. A withdrawal from a graduate course is not official until the form has been properly approved and has the appropriate signatures. The course withdrawal period begins after late registration. The student's permanent record shows a grade of W for a withdrawal. The record of any student who has received two or more W grades is reviewed prior to the student's continuance in the program. Failure to comply with the official withdrawal procedure results in a permanent grade of F.

The last day to withdraw from a course with a grade of W is by close of business on the dates below:
