Beginning the first class day of a semester, students who are financially settled must schedule an exit interview with a representative in Academic Support Programs within the Paul L. Foster Success Center (PLFSC) in order to withdraw from the University. For a nursing student on the Dallas campus to withdraw from the University during a semester, the student must secure clearance from the Associate Dean prior to scheduling an exit interview.
The effective University Withdrawal date is established by the date on which a student schedules an exit interview with a staff member in Academic Support Programs within the Paul L. Foster Success Center. The date the appointment is scheduled may be different than the actual date of the interview.
Any other procedure will lead to failure in all courses for which the student is registered. Under no circumstance does notification to professors or dropping classes constitute an official University Withdrawal.
Dropping classes vs. University Withdrawal
A Class Withdrawal (dropping a class) is not considered a University Withdrawal. The term "University Withdrawal" refers to discontinuing all classes after financial settlement through an exit interview with the PLFSC and leaving the University for that semester. If you are considering dropping one or more classes, see http://www.baylor.edu/b4udrop
