Withdrawal after a term has started after CENSUS DATE TO LAST DAY OF REGULAR CLASSES

You can withdraw completely from a semester and receive grades of SW (Semester Withdrawal) in all of your courses only one time during your undergraduate career. A semester withdrawal is the withdrawal from all courses after Census Date. The SW limit is being counted out from Fall 2013 forward. Grades of SW do not impact your cumulative grade point average. If you have not used your one SW limit, you will be automatically approved once you complete the form. You will receive notification via email from the Registrar’s Office. The deadline to request a complete withdrawal from a semester is still the last day of regular classes.

Second and subsequent requests for post-Census withdrawals will be reviewed by the Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs. Students will be notified via email whether the request has been approved or denied. Students who are approved for a second or subsequent post-Census withdrawal will receive the grade of AW in all of their courses. Students not approved will be assigned a grade by each instructor at the end of the term. The deadline to request a complete withdrawal from a semester is still the last day of regular classes. In Fall 2013, this is Dec. 13.
