Complete Withdrawal Instructions

Withdrawing from a course before the deadline will not affect a student's GPA or academic standing. A notation of W, WP or WF is made on a student's transcript depending on the timing of course withdrawal. See schedule of classes for dates.
Students are strongly advised not to withdraw from courses unless absolutely necessary.
Students receiving Financial Aid should check with the Student Financial Services before withdrawing from classes. Student progress toward degree completion is checked every semester for students receiving federal grants and loans. Students must pass and complete 75% of all work attempted to maintain financial aid.
Student Athletes should check with the Athletic Department as course withdrawal could affect eligibility for competition.
