Withdrawing from Courses

Withdrawing from Courses

For regular, full-semester courses, students may withdraw from class through the eleventh week of class. Students who withdraw after the end of the first full week receive a grade of W, which does not affect GPA. Students who withdraw after the eleventh week receive a grade of WF, which is calculated as an F in the GPA. The dates for W and WF deadlines are posted in the Academic Calendar. For classes with irregular meeting dates, please refer to the table below.

In case of illness or injury, family members may complete the student withdrawal from the college. In case of duress or special need, an administrative withdrawal may be initiated by the Dean of Students.

Students who fail to withdraw from courses they have not attended are liable for all tuition and interest charged to their accounts. Grades of F are assigned at the end of the semester for any classes that students fail to drop.

Medical Withdrawals

Students who are unable to complete a semester due to serious health problems and who are not eligible for grades of incomplete may request a medical withdrawal. Students seeking a medical withdrawal should contact the Dean of Students. Written verification from a physician or licensed mental health professional will be required. A medical withdrawal usually constitutes withdrawal from all courses for the semester, and withdrawals are made retroactive only to the last date of attendance. Requests for medical withdrawals must be submitted within six weeks after the end of the semester in question. If a medical withdrawal is granted, reevaluation by the student’s physician or counselor may be required prior to re-registration.

Tuition Appeals

Tuition is refunded as of the date of your drop. Click here for the tuition refund schedule.

Students may appeal charges of tuition and fees (for personal and/or medical reasons) by submitting a letter of appeal and appropriate documentation. The appeal can be submitted to any member of the Appeals Committee from the following offices: Student Account Services, Registrar’s Office, Financial Aid, and the Dean of Students.

Appeal requests must be submitted within six weeks after the end of the semester in question. Approved appeals will be made retroactive only to the last date of attendance.

Changes in registered hours may change any financial aid disbursed to an account (see also Financial Aid Miscellaneous Information, Withdrawal from College, Medical Withdrawal).
