Class Withdrawal

Students may withdraw from individual classes until the deadline each semester, term, or session (see Academic Calendar for specific dates). Students who complete the class withdrawal process will receive a grade of W. Tuition and fees are not adjusted for withdrawing from individual classes. Students are required to earn at least 67% of their attempted hours each semester to maintain financial aid eligibility. Students who withdraw from more than 33% of their attempted hours in a semester will lose financial aid. Failure to attend class does not constitute official withdrawal from that class.

Note that if students are enrolled in only one (1) course and choose to withdraw from the course, the student must withdraw from the university instead of withdrawing from the course.

Students are permitted to withdraw from a maximum of 16 credit hours throughout their undergraduate career. After a student has exceeded this limit, the student must earn a final grade of A, B, C, D, F, or FN.

If a student, using the online course withdrawal process, withdraws from all courses for which the student is enrolled, the student is considered to have officially withdrawn from the university. The official university withdrawal date will be the date the student withdrew from the last class.
