Course Withdrawal

Registration by a student incurs the obligation to pay all tuition and fees. Requests to withdraw from a course must be submitted in writing on the undergraduate Change of Registration Form. Part-time students who drop courses via WebAdvisor must email a request for refund (containing student name, ID number, and specific refund type required) to webpayments@loyola.edu. Students may not drop their entire schedule via WebAdvisor (when open). To drop or withdraw from all courses, contact the Academic Advising and Support Center (AASC) at 410-617-5050 or aasc@loyola.edu.

Change of Registration Form requests for course withdrawal are considered official once they are signed by the student's faculty advisor and instructor of the course, then approved by an administrator from AASC and received in the Records Office. Intercollegiate athletes must also obtain the signature of an administrator from Student Athlete Support Services.  Phone requests are not accepted. Non-payment of tuition, mere non-attendance at class, or verbal permission from an instructor to withdraw from a course does not constitute official withdrawal from the course. Unless approval is received from the Academic Advising and Support Center, a grade of F is entered on the student's permanent record. In case of inability to return to campus, contact AASC at 410-617-5050 or aasc@loyola.edu.

The course withdrawal period begins after late registration. The student's permanent record shows a grade of W for a withdrawal.
