Withdrawing from Classes

The last day for graduate students to withdraw from courses and still receive a "W" on the transcript will occur no later than in the eleventh week of either spring or fall semester. Check the Academic Calendar on BlazerNET for the appropriate semester to verify the last date for withdrawal.

Mere cessation of class attendance does not constitute withdrawal, either academically or for tuition charges. If you fail to attend classes rather than properly withdraw (if this is an option), you will receive a final grade of F in the course. Students who wish to withdraw from a class after the Add/Drop date has passed must communicate with their Theme Manager and complete and submit to the Graduate School an academic appeal form.
