Faculty, Deans (and designees) should be as flexible and accommodating as possible in considering requests for course withdrawals. 

  • Please encourage students to consult with student support services (Financial Aid & Scholarships, Veterans Services, International Student Services, etc.). before initiating a withdrawal request; additional information about Withdrawals may also be found on the Course Withdrawals page.  
  • The process begins with the student sending a notification to faculty through email; for fall 2020, instructor approval is not a requirement but students are asked to notify instructors (in addition, the Registrar's Office will send email notification when W grades are assigned)
  • Students should submit completed petitions for course withdrawal through the Withdrawal Petition Form which is then routed to the College Deans (or designees) for review.    
  • Students who are inquiring about the status of their petition should contact (monitored by the Office of the Registrar)   
  • Please note the difference between an official withdrawal and an unofficial or unauthorized withdrawal, as noted on the Grading page.
