Late Withdrawal

Students should familiarize themselves with the university’s Academic Calendar and pay close attention to the add, drop and withdrawal tuition deadline dates. Although students may be eligible for 100% tuition refund for classes dropped before the last day to drop without a penalty, the university does not offer partial reimbursements after that date. Students receiving Financial Aid should contact a financial aid advisor before dropping a course since it may impact their financial aid

Late Withdrawal Procedure

If a student has experienced medical or personal circumstances that negatively impact their ability to be academically successful, the Dean of Students Office offers the Appeal for Course Withdrawal form which contains appeal policies and instructions and should be completed only after all other resources have been explored.

If a student is requesting late course withdrawal for reasons unrelated to medical or personal circumstances, then the student must complete a Late Course Withdrawal form.  The Liberal Arts and Social Sciences Undergraduate College Office will follow strict guidelines for late withdrawal requests and will consult with relevant offices if necessary. Guidelines for late withdrawals are included in the form. Late withdrawals are only granted under documented, extenuating circumstances beyond the student’s control.​
