Withdrawals

A student may perform or request a withdrawal once the add/drop period for a semester ends. Removal actions performed during a registration period or add/drop are not considered withdrawals; they are “drops.”


Students are no longer able to withdraw from their last remaining course using the online portal. Students wishing to withdraw from only some courses should wtihdraw from the course(s) themselves, following the instructions for Withdrawing After Drop/Add. Those students wishing to withdraw from ALL registered courses should withdraw from all but one course online, then complete the Last Class Withdrawal to complete and finalize the withdrawal process.

Medical Withdrawal

Medical Withdrawals are processed by the Dean of Students. Students who may qualify for a medical withdraw should submit the Request for Medical Withdrawal and supporting documentation to the Dean of Students Office.

Other types of withdrawals include Withdrawal Due to Displacement (ex. natural disaster, active duty military service, etc.) and Late Withdrawals.
