Regulations and Procedures
Withdrawal from Courses
Withdrawals made before the end of the first week of classes will not appear on a student’s permanent internal record. After the first week of classes, withdrawals are automatically marked W until the university automatic W deadline. After the automatic W deadline, withdrawal is permitted only if the instructor and dean of the student’s school approve the request on the basis of urgent, documented reasons relating to the student’s health or equivalent distress. The desire to avoid a low grade is not an acceptable reason for withdrawal from a course. If a student withdraws with the consent of the instructor and the dean, the grade in the course shall be W if the work is passing and F if the work is not passing. The grade will be recorded on the date of withdrawal. Failure to complete a course without an authorized withdrawal will result in the grade of FNN or FN.
