Change of Registration and Withdrawal

After the second week of classes, the only routinely permissible changes of registration are withdrawals from individual courses or withdrawal from all courses. Both procedures are allowed without academic penalty until the end of the eighth week, and either may be accomplished by a form that is available from the graduate registrar. The date on which the graduate registrar receives notification of withdrawal from the student governs the academic and financial consequences of the withdrawal. Students withdrawing from a course after the eighth week need the approval of the dean's office. They also are required to provide a letter from the instructor indicating their academic status in the course, and are subject to receiving a failing grade at the discretion of the instructor. A student who stops attending a course without notifying the registrar will receive a grade of F in that course. No refunds of tuition are given for individual course withdrawals after the second week of classes. A student who withdraws from all courses, however, may receive a partial refund according to the rules described on the Student Accounting website. Withdrawal is not permitted during the last two weeks of classes.
