Undergraduate Drop and Course Withdrawal Policy and Procedure

Should you decide to drop or withdraw from a course, you must notify the Office of the Registrar in writing. A verbal notice is not sufficient. Deadlines for dropping or withdrawing from courses are listed below. These dates are also available on the Academic Calendar. Please note that a refund from the course is computed separately from dropping and withdrawing. Please refer to the Tuition Refund information below. 

You may withdraw without academic penalty from a course with a grade of W at any time during the first two-thirds of the semester. The grade of W does not affect your grade point average, but will appear on your academic transcript. After the two-thirds mark, you may withdraw with academic penalty from a course with a grade of WP (withdrew passing) or WF (withdrew failing) which will be assigned by the faculty member. Both the WP and WF will appear on your academic transcript. A grade of WF will be computed in your grade point average.
