Graduate Students: Withdrawal Information
Complete Withdrawal From the University
To withdraw from the university, graduate students should first contact the Program Coordinator of their respective program. Students may withdraw from their courses online through the 5th day of the quarter. After the 5th day, students will need to withdraw from the courses through Student Academic Services. Students may come to the office in DH 151 or may submit a Withdrawing from the University form indicating which courses they need to be withdrawn from. Refunds and adjustments to the student's account are governed be the financial policies listed in the Costs and Financial Aid section of the Graduate catalog for the current academic year.
A student who registers but does not attend classes must notify Student Academic Services in writing to cancel his or her registration and related charges. The date this notice is received will determine the amount of refund where applicable. After the 5th day of the quarter the student must submit the appropriate withdrawal form.
If a student fails to withdraw through Student Academic Services by the last drop date of the quarter, the student will receive the grade earned.
