  School of Social Work 2005-2007 Academic Policies and Procedures Registration and Course Information Withdrawal  


A graduate student who wishes to withdraw from all courses does so by submitting a written notice to the registrar, or by completing a withdrawal form in person at the registrar`s office. To withdraw, a student must notify his or her adviser, the assistant dean, and the registrar`s office. A student who leaves the university without officially withdrawing in this manner receives a failing grade in each course. The date on which the registrar receives the written notice governs the academic and financial consequences of withdrawal. The privilege of official withdrawal is not granted after the 12th week of the term; students who leave school during this period are still considered officially enrolled and will receive final grades for the term.

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.
