Withdrawal From All Courses During Any Given Semester
Sometimes it becomes necessary to withdraw from all of one’s classes in a semester due to a major personal emergency. In this case, follow the instructions for dropping a course. You must also notify your advisor and the Office of Graduate Studies in writing. Please be advised that if you still have incomplete grades from a previous semester, you remain responsible for following college policy to resolve the incompletes (see "Incomplete Grades").
Permanent Withdrawal From Academic Program and College
Graduate students who find it necessary to permanently withdraw from the College must complete the required Notice of Intent to Withdraw from College form, which can be obtained the Office of Graduate Studies, 135 Netzer. Submit the completed form to the Office of Graduate Studies.
If the completed form is submitted prior to the deadline for individual course withdrawal (see the Key Dates and Deadlines for that semester), a "W" grade for each class will appear on the transcript. If it is submitted after the deadline for individual course withdrawal (one week past the semester mid-point) and up until two weeks prior to the beginning of final exams, the student will receive a "W" with a parenthetical grade that indicates the quality of their work up to the time of the withdrawal.
Students who withdraw from the College for the semester at any time from two weeks before the beginning of final exams until the end of final exams will be academically liable for all course enrollments. The effective date of the withdrawal will be the last day of final exams. In this case, final grades will be assigned.
Students who withdraw from the College and who wish to return at any time in the future are required to apply for readmission.
