Required Signatures

Possible Outcomes


Please Note:
  • Having a passing grade in a class at the time of petition DOES NOT guarantee the right to withdraw after the deadline.
  • The University Registrar or Graduate Dean has final approval/disapproval authority.
  • The instructor may recommend an action or write an explanation of the applicable circumstances but does not have approval/disapproval authority.
  • The Instructor will assign a WP or WF.

WP: Withdrawn Passing

Indicates that the student successfully petitioned to withdraw from a course after the official deadline and was making satisfactory progress at the time. There is no impact on the student's GPA.

WF: Withdrawn Failing

Indicates that a student successfully petitioned to withdraw from a course after the official deadline and was not making satisfactory progress at the time. A WF has a negative impact on GPA and is calculated in the same manner as an F.
