You may adjust your schedule of classes through the last day of late registration (see Academic Calendars for specific dates). After this date, you will be permitted to adjust your schedules only for unusual and documented circumstances beyond your control and must be approved by the faculty member, department chair, dean, and provost. You are cautioned that adjustments of your official schedule may affect tuition, fees, and financial aid eligibility, and may require additional payment and/or reimbursement of financial aid awards.
Course Withdrawals information:
You may withdraw from individual classes until the deadline each semester, term, or session (see Academic Calendars for specific dates). If you who complete the class withdrawal process, you will receive a grade of W. Your tuition and fees are not adjusted for withdrawing from individual classes. You are required to earn at least 67% of your attempted hours each semester to maintain financial aid eligibility. If you withdraw from more than 33% of your attempted hours in a semester, you will lose financial aid. If you are enrolled in only one (1) course and choose to withdraw from the course, you must withdraw from the university instead of withdrawing from the course. You are permitted to withdraw from a maximum of 16 credit hours throughout your undergraduate career. After you have exceeded this limit, you must earn a final grade of A, B, C, D, F, or FN. If you withdraw from all courses for which you are enrolled, you are considered to have officially withdrawn from the university. The official university withdrawal date will be the date you withdrew from the last class.
Term Withdrawal Information:
Before deciding to withdraw from the university, you must consult with your advisor to discuss the reasons for your withdrawal and plan for continuing your education. You can then begin the official term withdrawal process by submitting the online Term Withdrawal Form. If you are under 18 years of age, you must have the approval of a parent or guardian before withdrawing from the university. The official date of withdrawal (for purposes of computing charges and grades) will be the date you submit the online form. The university will not make any refund of tuition/ fees or room and board charges until four (4) weeks after you complete the official withdrawal process. All refunds will be made by the method selected by you for refunds. You may withdraw from the university until two weeks prior to the beginning of final exams (see Academic Calendars for specific deadlines). If you are seeking to withdraw from the university after the published deadline and do not meet the criteria for “Withdrawal for Extenuating Circumstances”, you must make the request, in writing, to the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. This request must include documentation of unavoidable and unforeseen circumstances that prevented you from meeting the published deadline. Such requests must be made no later than the end of the next regular semester after the semester for which the term withdrawal is requested. If you officially withdraw from the university, you will receive a WU grade in all of your classes (see “Grades”). If you receive WU grades, you may re-enroll in the next regular semester or summer term without making an application for readmission, but cannot enroll in the same semester for an 8-week term. If you are seeking to withdraw from the university within the deadline but have earned grades in the previous 8-week session, you will retain those grades. You will be assigned a WU for the remaining courses. Hours with a grade of WU count as hours attempted but not completed for the purposes of financial aid. Withdrawal from the University may therefore have an adverse effect on your financial aid. In addition, If you withdraw from the University the semester after being placed on Academic Probation, you will be considered to have two consecutive semesters below2.0 for the purposes of calculating academic standing. Withdrawal from the University may therefore have an adverse effect on your academic standing as well.

Withdrawing from classes

If we see you have all Ws for grades, we will withdraw you from the university for that semester effective the date you withdrew from the last class.
I have an Incomplete "I" grade - What do I do?
An "I" grade must be removed before the expiration of the first nine weeks of the student's next regular semester (fall or spring) of enrollment, or within 12 months of the last day of the semester or term in which the "I" grade was assigned. If the "I" grade is not removed within the stipulated time, the grade will be converted to "F". Students are responsible for initiating the actions necessary to remove the "I" grades.
