To establish a university policy for withdrawal from a course or the university.


Students may withdraw from a course or from the university from the end of the drop/add period through the "last day to withdraw" as indicated in the academic calendar.

A grade of "W" will be assigned upon completion of the withdrawal request process, and no refund is generated. If a student merely stops attending classes without officially withdrawing, a final grade of "F" will be assigned.

Late Withdrawals

If a student misses the deadline for withdrawing, a student may petition for late withdrawal if there are unusual circumstances clearly beyond the student's control. The dean or designee of the student's college has final approval/disapproval authority. The course instructor does not approve or disapprove the withdrawal, but only assigns a grade of WP or WF. The instructor may recommend an action or write an explanation of the applicable circumstances.

This policy does not mean that a student has the right to withdraw from a course after the official withdrawal deadline simply because he/she had a passing grade at the time.


Student can withdraw electronically in Banner Student Self Service or by completing an official withdrawal request and submitting said request to One-Stop Student Services by the deadline posted on the Academic Calendar.
