After the Drop/Add Period has closed, students must request an official withdrawal from the Registrar to be removed from a course. Students are only allowed to withdraw for a certain period of time per the withdrawal schedule below.

16-Week Seated Classes = Weeks 4–9

8-Week Online or Intensive Classes = Weeks 2–5

Any withdrawals after this period may only be allowed for significant conditions beyond the student’s control (e.g., serious illness documented by a physician’s letter) at the discretion of the Provost.

Withdrawals are not permitted in the last week of class for any reason.

Withdrawing renders the course grade of W (if passing) or WF (if failing). These grades are not considered when calculating GPA, but they may impact a student’s satisfactory academic progress as it relates to financial aid. Therefore, it is highly recommended you contact the Financial Aid Director prior to withdrawing.

Students who wish to withdraw from a course are required to make an official contact via email to the Registrar. In all cases, the date of withdrawal is the date the form/email is received. Students can access withdrawal forms via the website or the Registrar’s Office.

No refund will be processed for withdrawals.
