  Camden Undergraduate Catalog 2021-2023 Academic Policies and Procedures Registration and Course Information Withdrawal  


A student who desires to withdraw from an undergraduate college must:

1. obtain a Notification of Withdrawal Form from the registrar or the Office of Academic Advising;

2. secure an appointment with an adviser in the Office of Academic Advising for the purpose of obtaining permission to withdraw without penalty;

3. be prepared to state in full, in writing, for the record, the reason(s) for withdrawing;

4. obtain signatures of approval from the financial aid, housing, and, if applicable, EOF offices; and

5. return the completed form, in person, to the registrar.

A student who leaves the college unofficially without following this procedure receives a grade of F, NC, or U in each course. A student who is unable to adhere to the above because of illness or other sufficient reason may submit the Notification of Withdrawal Form by mail to the registrar's office.

Refunds of tuition are calculated from the date the student signs the written Notification of Withdrawal Form. However, the form must be approved by the Office of Academic Advising and received by the registrar within 72 hours of the student's signature. See the tuition and fees website ( for information concerning the computation of refunds of tuition. A student is not eligible for a refund unless his or her withdrawal is formally reported to the registrar.

When a student officially withdraws from the college, a grade of W is assigned in each course. This symbol is recorded on the student's record.

Withdrawal as such is not recognized during the last two weeks of class meetings; students leaving during this period receive standard grades for the semester.

Please note that notification to the instructor, adviser, or school does not fulfill the student's obligation to communicate directly and in writing with the registrar in all matters pertaining to changes in registration and withdrawal.
