Eligible students may withdraw from their classes during the withdraw schedule period that is provided for each session of a semester/term in the Academic Calendar.

Students in a 16-week session follow the following schedule:

  • After the fourth week through the twelfth week students will receive an automatic W on their transcript.
  • After the twelfth week, students will need to follow the Late/Retroactive Withdrawal Policy.

Students who want to withdraw from all of their classes must follow the Total Withdraw Policy.

Students in 8-week courses follow a similar schedule. See the academic calendar for specific dates.

Students may withdraw from a course with a co-requisite with instructor or advisor permission through the last day for a 25% refund (full 16 week session). After the last day for a 25% refund, through the regular course drop deadline, a student may withdraw from one of the co-requisite courses without permission. After the regular course withdrawal deadline, students must submit a petition for late/retroactive withdrawal.

Students should consult with an academic advisor before withdrawing from any course.

Regular course drop deadlines and percentage refund dates may be found in the University Academic Calendar.
