A student withdrawing from the university (dropping all courses during a given term) must submit the withdrawal request to the dean of students office. Withdrawal after registration day will be noted on the academic transcript by assigning a grade of “W” to all courses. The date of the withdrawal will be noted on the academic transcript for a withdrawal at any time during the term.
A student who reduces his or her course load below the minimum required for full time status, but does not withdraw from the university, becomes a part-time student for the rest of that semester. Some areas affected by part-time status are financial aid, athletic eligibility, veterans affairs, immigration status, insurance and loan deferment.
