Students may officially withdraw (W) from a class or all classes after the drop deadline through the midpoint of a course. A “W” grade is recorded on the transcript and appropriate tuition/fees are assessed. The grade of "W" is not used in calculating the student's GPA.
See the Academic Calendar for the last day to withdraw from term, first and second session classes. Students may withdraw from workshops, miscellaneous, and short term classes according to the Deadlines for Courses With Irregular Start and End Dates policy.
How to withdraw:
- Students can withdraw online by logging into Campus Information Services and click on “Drop Class” under the Registration heading.
- Students in PRTL, PRTS, and PRTW classes for credit should contact the Registration & Records Division through UMail.
- Students enrolled in noncredit classes should contact the Continuing Education Office.
Students facing compelling, non-academic emergencies may petition to withdraw from courses after the withdrawal deadline through the last day of class for the course. The Petition for Consideration of Exception to the Withdrawal Policy is available through the appropriate dean’s office:
