How do I withdraw from a course?
Once the add/drop period ends, students may no longer add courses into their schedules. They may, however, withdraw from a course but with academic and financial liabilities. Students wishing to withdraw from a course or courses after the add/drop period has ended must complete a withdrawal from course form. On this form, the student may indicate which courses he or she would like to withdraw from. According to specific time intervals (indicated in the appropriate semester's course bulletin), a student will receive a W grade. A grade of W is shown on the student's transcript but does not affect her cumulative grade point average.
