Registration and Withdrawal

Students should familiarize themselves with the university's Academic Calendar and pay close attention to the add, drop and withdrawal dates. 

Late Registration/Enrollment Overrides

The Graduate Student Services Office is responsible for processing permission-only courses and late registration requests. It is the student's responsibility to facilitate the registration by contacting the department/instructor of the course and requesting that they grant permission by submitting an enrollment request through the online request form​. The student will receive an automatic email confirmation once the enrollment has been processed.

Late Withdrawals

Students may apply for one late withdrawal from the College of LAS and one administrative withdrawal from the Dean of Students during their college career. An application for withdrawal is not a guarantee that the withdrawal will be approved.

If a student has experienced medical or personal circumstances that negatively impact their ability to be academically successful and it is after a drop or withdrawal deadline, the Dean of Students Office offers the Administrative Withdrawal Appeal

If a student has reasons unrelated to medical or personal circumstances that negatively impact their ability to be academically successful and it is after a drop or withdrawal deadline, the College of LAS offers the Late Withdrawal form.  

Please note: 

  • Neither process will address tuition charges, refunds, or credits; nor financial aid issues. Questions regarding the financial implications of the administrative withdrawal must be directed to OFA_AdmWdrl@depaul.edu

  • Administrative withdrawal requests that are a remedy under policies such as The Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy or the Sexual and Relationship Violence and Response policy, or that are provided as a reasonable accommodation in consultation with the Center for Students with Disabilities, will be handled on a case by case basis in consultation with the LAS Dean’s Office and the Associate Provost in Academic Affairs.
