After the add/drop period is completed, and continuing until the final instructional day of the semester prior to finals, a student may withdraw from a course and a grade of "W" will be recorded on the transcript and remain as part of the student’s permanent academic record.

There is no limit to the number of courses from which a student may withdraw.

Although not required, students are encouraged to consult with the instructor to verify their grades and status in the course, and to meet with their advisor to discuss the potential benefits and concerns of withdrawing from a particular course.

Students should be aware that withdrawing from one or more courses may result in consequences related to academic progress, financial aid, and/or related areas and should seek advising accordingly.
