Students may officially withdraw from a course or program without academic penalty up until two-thirds of the course contact hours have been completed. Specific withdrawal dates vary and students should become familiar with the withdrawal dates of their program.

You must submit either an official withdrawal form obtained from the Registrar’s Office, or a letter-signed and dated by yourself-clearly outlining the course name, number and section.

Failure to comply with the proper withdrawal procedures may result in a grade being assigned based on the work completed to the date of withdrawal or a failing grade (F) and ineligibility for any refund of tuition fees. Withdrawals will not be accepted without your signature.

Late withdrawals

Late withdrawals will be considered by the Registrar in the event that extenuating circumstances prevent you from notifying the University prior to the last day to withdraw. A grade of “W” will be assigned when you officially withdraw from a course.

Academic misconduct, academic deficiency or for unsatisfactory attendance may result in dismissal from a course. A final grade will be assigned based on the work completed to the date of dismissal. Dismissals are subject to appeal and students must be informed, in writing, of their right to appeal such a decision at the time of dismissal.
