Official Withdrawal:

Undergraduate students desiring to withdraw from courses during a semester must secure a withdrawal form from the Registrar’s Office and have it signed by the student’s academic advisor, course coordinator(s) and Dean. Courses dropped during the Drop/Add period (first 7 days) are not recorded on the student’s academic record. Courses dropped after the Drop/Add period are recorded with grade notations of W (withdrawal) or WF (withdrawal failing). The assignment of the grade when withdrawing is determined b the student’s academic performance at the time of withdrawal. The last date for withdrawal is the date established by the Registrar’s Office and published on the Academic Calendar (2/3 of the scheduled term) unless otherwise noted in the course syllabus and calendar. Following the 2/3 date, course withdrawal will not be allowed. Students may change their enrollment during this time but need to be aware that withdrawal from coursework may affect their ability to meet Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements. In order to maintain eligibility for financial assistance full-time students are required to earn 12 hours per semester or 24 hours a year. Part-time students are required to earn 80% of the hours they attempt. Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress is outlined in the Financial Aid section.

Tuition and fees paid by a student authorized to withdraw are refundable only as indicated under Refunds from the “Tuition and Fees” section of the College Catalog. Failure to process withdrawals prior to the last date of withdrawal will result in a grade of F.

Graduate students desiring to withdraw from courses during a semester must notify the academic advisor, course coordinator(s), and Registrar in person or through Research College of Nursing email. The Registrar will initiate the withdrawal form and collect appropriate signatures. Graduate students follow the same policies as Undergraduate students for Official Withdrawals, Unofficial Withdrawals, Total Withdrawals, and Administrative Withdrawals.

Total withdrawals must have the Dean’s signature and the Last Date of Attendance will be used as the Withdrawal Date for any refund considerations.

Administrative withdrawals must go to the Dean’s Office for consideration and if approved, Last Date of Attendance will be used with the authorization of any refund.

This policy applies regardless of the length of the course. The procedures and deadlines for withdrawal from individual courses also apply to changes to audit status in any class.
