Withdrawal

 A student desiring to withdraw completely from the university at any time must obtain an official withdrawal form from the Office of Student Records. The date of withdrawal is the date this form is returned to the Office of Student Records. If a student drops out of the university without permission, the official transcript will show a grade of “FA” in all courses for that semester or term.

  • The permanent record of a student who withdraws from all courses within the schedule change period will not show courses attempted for that term.
  • The permanent record of a student who withdraws from all courses for a semester or term before the deadline, as stated in the Academic Calendar, will show courses attempted and will show a grade of “W” (withdrew). A “W” is not calculated in the student’s GPA.
  • No student who withdraws from the university for any reason is entitled to transcript of credits until the student’s financial account has been settled in the Bursar’s Office.
  • A student who withdraws after the deadline, as stated in the Academic Calendar, automatically receives a “WF,” indicating an unofficial withdrawal. “WF” carries the same penalty as “F” and is calculated in the student’s GPA.

Please note: Failure to attend class does not constitute withdrawal. Students are responsible for completing the appropriate paperwork and submitting it to Student Records.
