Withdrawal from Classes

Any student may withdraw from a class until one week beyond mid-term of a semester or summer term. All withdrawals from classes after the “drop/add — change-of-schedule” period are recorded with a “W” on the student’s permanent academic record along with the official date of withdrawal. Half-term courses or short-term courses have withdrawal time limits established on a basis prorated to withdrawal dates for full-term courses. You must obtain either your adviser’s or the instructor’s signature during this time period. No student is permitted to withdraw from a class later than one week beyond mid-term of a semester or a summer session. Only a grade of “F” or “I” may be recorded for any student who enters this time period and fails to complete a course. (Exceptions — See “Withdrawal from the University” on this page)

Failure to follow the prescribed procedures and to observe the prescribed time limits for withdrawal from classes will result in the recording of failing grades in discontinued courses.

If a student withdraws from or fails to complete a course taken as a “repeat,”  the original grade earned will remain in the overall grade point average calculation.
