Course Withdrawal

Course Withdrawal

After the “last day to drop without W grade,” a student may withdraw from a course prior to or on the “last day to withdraw from a course” as indicated on the current Academic Calendar for your College/Program. When a student withdraws from a course by the deadline date, a “W” will appear on the transcript for that course, which will affect the student’s academic progress; however, it will not impact the student’s GPA.

If the student officially withdraws after the “last day to withdraw from a course,” a “WF” will appear on the transcript and will affect the GPA calculations and Academic Standing. If the student fails to officially withdraw from a course before the “last day to withdraw from a course,” a grade of “F” will appear on his/her transcript and affect the student’s GPA calculations and Academic Standing. Verbal notification to the course instructor does not constitute an official course withdrawal. Approved, official university documentation must be completed.

In exceptional cases, a student may request special permission to withdraw from a course after the “last day to withdraw from a course” deadline. In such cases a grade of “W” will appear on the transcript for that course, which will affect progress.
