POL 6.050A Withdrawl from Classes

Students may withdraw from courses for which they are registered.

FULL SEMESTER COURSES
If a withdrawal is made before or on the census date for the semester, no grade will be recorded.  However, for withdrawals made after the census date and through the twelfth week of the semester or through the eighth week of the summer semester, a grade of “W” will automatically be issued.

SHORT COURSES (Courses that are scheduled for less than a full semester)
A withdrawal must be made before the final exam is issued for the course.  If a withdrawal is made on or before the census date for the course, no grade will be recorded.  However, for withdrawals made after the census date of the course, a grade of “W” will automatically be issued.

FLEX COURSES
A withdrawal must be made before the final exam is issued or before the coursework is completed for the course.  If a withdrawal is made before the course begins, no grade will be recorded.  However, for withdrawals made after the course begins, a grade of “W” will automatically be issued.

Generally, a withdrawal from a course is the student’s option.  However, students who are enrolled in a program that has additional requirements may be required to withdraw from a course by their program advisor.  As part of a disciplinary action, following due process, an “administrative withdrawal” may be authorized by the dean of student services.
