Request to Withdraw

Students not attending a class in which they are enrolled must drop or request to withdraw from the class; failure to do so will result in a failing grade on the student's record (F or WU). Withdrawing occurs when you request to remove yourself from classes AFTER the drop deadline. Please review Dropping & Withdrawing for policy guidance as well as things you should consider prior to requesting to withdraw.
