Withdrawing Courses

Courses can be withdrawn online through the end of the seventh week of the term as defined in the academic calendar.

What is the difference between a drop & a withdrawal?

A dropped course does not appear on your academic transcript. A withdrawn course will appear on your transcript with a grade of W. The W grade does not affect your GPA. The W grade indicates that the course was withdrawn after the drop period.


How to Withdraw from a Course

To withdraw from a course login to Online Services, choose the Registration menu, choose Add/Drop classes, and scroll to the bottom of the page. Identify the course you wish to withdraw from and use the drop down box next to it to choose withdraw course. Click the Submit button at the bottom of the page. The page will reload. Scroll to the bottom to verify that the course was dropped by verifying that the course status column indicates “withdrawn” and the date of the transaction.
