An undergraduate student withdrawing from the university (dropping all courses during a given term) must submit the withdrawal request to the dean of students office. Graduate students should review the policies and complete the appropriate form for the Graduate Student Life 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.
