A student may drop a class during the period specified in the academic calendar and the course will not be recorded on the transcript. A student may voluntarily withdraw with an entry of W (Withdrawn) on the transcript after the last day for course addition and continuing through the withdrawal deadline. Withdrawals after this time and prior to mid-semester are recorded on the transcript and designated by the instructor as either WP (Withdrawn Passing) or WF (Withdrawn Failing). After mid-semester all withdrawals are designated as WF (Withdrawn Failing) unless the withdrawal is for demonstrably bona fide reasons acceptable to the Committee on Academic Standards. A first-year student may not withdraw from Core 100.
Students are not permitted to withdraw from a course to avoid the consequences of academic dishonesty.
All withdrawals must be submitted officially on forms available from the Registrar. The student's withdrawal will be official on the date this form is signed by the Provost or Registrar. The dates for Withdrawal Passing are not the same as the dates for withdrawal accompanied by refund of tuition charges, as described in the catalog section on Refunds in the Event of Withdrawal from a Class.
