Course Withdrawal

To withdraw from a course you must submit a course withdrawal form to the Office of Registration and Records by the appropriate deadlines. There are two course withdrawal forms — one for freshman and one for all other students taking undergraduate and graduate courses.

The Withdrawal Period runs from week five to week ten of a regular (spring and/or fall) semester. Departmental permission is not required during this period. The Late Withdrawal Period runs from week eleven to the Friday before the last week of classes. The student may need to provide the department chairperson with appropriate documentation to support the request for withdrawal. The signature of the department chairperson is required to be approved for the late withdrawal. No withdrawals will be permitted after the late withdrawal period.

For more information on withdrawal from a course, read our Add/Drop/Withdrawal FAQ.
