  • University Withdrawal or Withdrawal refers to discontinuing all classes only for the semester in which a student is currently enrolled.  A withdrawal occurs after financial settlement, on or after the first day of classes, and prior to the withdrawal deadline (see dates above for Summer Sessions).
  • The withdrawal process includes completing an online withdrawal form and having an exit interview before leaving the university for the semester.
  • The effective date of a University Withdrawal is established by the date on which a student initially contacts the university that they wish to withdraw. Under no circumstance does notifying professors or dropping classes constitute an official University Withdrawal. Leaving the University without following the established procedure will result in "Failure" of all courses for which the student is registered.
