Late withdrawal requests (i.e., those requested after the final date to drop through the term following the term in which the grade was assigned) for Undergraduate students should be filed in the Dean's Office of the student's major college or the Academic Counseling Center for students with no declared major. Athletes requesting late withdrawals must seek approval from their Athletic Academic Advisor. Upon approval, the student will be given a signed Schedule Adjustment Form. It is the student's responsibility to bring the Schedule Adjustment Form to the Registrar's Office for processing.
Withdrawals later than one regular term after the term in which the grade was assigned are processed as retroactive withdrawals. Students should request the approval of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Programs.
|Graduate Late Withdrawal||Graduate students should request approval for late withdrawals from the Director of Graduate Studies in the college of their major. Non-degree students require the approval of the Vice Provost for Graduate Studies. Upon approval, the student will be given a signed Schedule Adjustment Form. It is the student's responsibility to bring the Schedule Adjustment Form to the Registrar's Office for processing.|
