Students desiring any change in assignment or permission to withdraw or add any course should consult the registrar. Students may change their schedules during the first five days of each semester (the add/drop period). After this week, students must withdraw from a class or classes. The withdrawal procedure is incomplete until all necessary signatures have been secured. This must be done during the specified time shown in the current academic year calendar.
Beginning on the sixth class day of the semester until 4 p.m. on the 2nd Friday after mid-term grades are reported, a student may withdraw from a full-semester class with a grade of W, without affecting grade point average (see Grading System). There will be no exceptions to this deadline. (See the catalog for a summary of withdrawal dates.)
The last day for withdrawal from a half-semester class will be as posted in the academic calendar.
During the summer sessions, withdrawals will be permitted at any time prior to 4 p.m. the second calendar day before the last day of classes of each term. Failure to submit the withdrawal form to the Registrar’s Office by the deadline will result in the grade of IF.
Complete withdrawal from the University is processed through the Registrar’s Office. Unauthorized withdrawals from class or school are reported as failures.
Withdrawal from the University must be reported and financial clearance made at the Business Office. (See grading system for additional information on withdrawals.)
