Students dropping a full-semester class after the official add/drop period through the 15th week (i.e., the Friday before the start of the examination period) in the fall and winter semesters will be issued a “W” grade. Dates for withdrawing from a course not meeting for a full semester or for summer-session courses will be prorated. These dates are published by the Registrar’s Office at the beginning of each registration period. With documentation of the extenuating circumstances preventing a student from meeting the withdrawal deadline, exceptions to this policy may be made with the written approval of the Dean of Students Office. See for refund information.
