Procedure for Dropping or Withdrawing from a Course
A student who is considering dropping or withdrawing from an individual course is strongly urged to seek advisement, as appropriate, from his/her course instructor, his/her academic advisor, and/or relevant professional staff. Dropping or withdrawing from a course may affect issues concerning, but not limited to, financial aid eligibility, satisfactory progress towards graduation, athletic compliance, housing status, and involvement in campus activities and functions.
A student who decides to drop an individual course during the add-drop/100% refund period, as indicated on the academic calendar, may do so online. A student who decides to drop from a course during the 50% refund period may do so by accessing a drop form online or in the Office of the Registrar and submitting it to the Office of the Registrar no later than the date published on the academic calendar. The dropped course will not appear on the student’s transcript.
A student who decides to withdraw from a course after the 50% refund period (but no later than the last day to withdraw from a course, as indicated on the academic calendar) may do so by accessing a withdrawal form online, completing a course withdrawal form in the Office of the Registrar, or, withdrawing online through Web Self Service. Once the withdrawal form is processed by the Office of the Registrar, the student will receive a W for the withdrawn course, and both student and instructor of record will receive notification that the student has withdrawn from the course.
