Important Withdrawal Information

Withdrawal BEFORE Midterm

  • A completed withdrawal prior to the published midterm date for the term of enrollment will be assigned a grade of W (withdrew).
  • A grade of W is not included in the calculation of the GPA, but may have implications for continued financial aid eligibility (Consult the Financial Aid Office).
  • You may no longer attend class once you have officially withdrawn.

Withdrawal AFTER Midterm

  • A completed withdrawal after the published midterm date for the term of enrollment will be automatically a grade of WF (withdrew failing) unless a hardship exception is granted.            
  • A grade of WF is included in the calculation of the GPA the same as a grade of F and may have implications for continued financial aid eligibility (Consult the Financial Aid Office).
  • You may no longer attend class once you have officially withdrawn.
  • You may not submit a withdrawal after the last scheduled day of classes.

Hardship Withdrawals

To be eligible for a hardship withdrawal,  a student must meet ALL of the following criteria.

  • Experienced an emergency or other unanticipated hardship that makes continuation in the course or courses ill-advised.
  • Passing the course at the time the emergency or hardship arose.
  • Acted responsibly by notifying his or her instructors or other University official about the hardship situation as soon as possible after it arose.
  • Filed the hardship request with the appropriate dean as soon as it is feasible to do so. Hardship requests that are not filed in a timely manner are subject to denial even if the student was passing and the hardship was legitimate.
  • Withdraw from all classes.
  • Hardship withdrawals will only be considered prior to the last day of class. You may not file a hardship withdrawal once final exams have begun.
  •  Submit the hardship request form prior to the end of classes for which the hardship withdrawal is being requested. Requests for a hardship withdrawal will not be considered once final exams have started for the semester.
  • Hardship withdrawals will only be considered for the current semester. You may not retroactively request a hardship withdrawal for a previous semester.
