A student may officially withdraw from a course prior to the withdrawal deadline. It is the student’s responsibility to notify their student support advisor if they wish to withdraw from a course(s). A Withdrawal is recorded when the student withdraws after the drop period but prior to the last day to withdraw from the course. For students in the MPAS program, the deadline to withdraw from a course is the day before the last day of the course. A Withdrawal Passing (“WP”) grade is recorded for science, nursing and health professions courses when the student is passing the course at the time the withdrawal is requested. Students in the MPAS program whose Withdrawal Passing is due to a sudden, significant change in personal circumstances or health may be considered for an approved Leave of Absence (see “Leave of Absence” section). A Withdrawal Failing (“WF”) grade is recorded for science, nursing and health professions courses when the student is failing the course at the time the withdrawal is requested. If a student participates in the course after a request for withdrawal has been submitted, the request to withdraw will be voided and the student will remain enrolled in the course. A reduction in enrolled hours may affect financial aid eligibility and/or awards. Students who withdraw from a course will be considered for a tuition refund under the tuition refund policy. Students completely withdrawing from the institution, even during the drop period, will receive a Withdrawal grade in the course(s) and will be dropped from all future registrations. For purposes of evaluating satisfactory academic progress, a withdrawn course is counted in attempted hours but is not used in any GPA calculations. A withdrawal from a course may impact academic standing.
Students who withdraw from a course should be aware that re-enrollment in that same course in a future session is subject to availability.
