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. Final approval/disapproval authority rests with the Waiver of University Policy Committee. The course instructor assigns a grade of WP or WF and may recommend an action to approve or disapprove the withdrawal, give no recommendation, 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 submitting an official Request for Waiver of University Policy to One-Stop Student Services by the deadline posted on the Academic Calendar.
