To withdraw from the university, day students who have registered for classes
must officially discontinue. Before the first day of class, students may
use the Touch-tone telephone discontinuance feature (see current class
schedule for instructions). After classes begin students must discontinue
through the Discontinuance Office.
Students who have registered for classes and paid tuition must officially
discontinue to drop classes and initiate a tuition refund. (Refer to the
Tuition and Fees section of this catalog for refund information.) Students
who have registered for classes but have not paid tuition must also discontinue.
If these students do not withdraw before the start of classes, they will
be billed for tuition up to the official date of discontinuance.
The discontinuance process includes the following:
All undergraduate students who discontinue during a major semester (fall
or winter) or during the term for which they were accepted should contact
the Admissions Office about future readmission eligibility. To withdraw
after the twelfth week of the semester (or fifth week of a block or term),
students must file a petition with the Registration/Records petition secretary
(B-150 ASB) rather than contacting the Discontinuance Office.
Those students registered as Evening Classes students only must discontinue
through the Office of Evening Classes (120 HCEB). Law School students must
initiate their discontinuance through the office of the Law School dean
Students who leave the university under emergency conditions and subsequently
do not return still have the responsibility to discontinue before the discontinuance
deadline. Official termination can be completed by contacting the Discontinuance
Office at the earliest possible time.
- Before classes begin students may use the Touch-tone discontinuance feature
(see current class schedule).
- After classes begin consult with the Discontinuance Office representative
and complete discontinuance forms available from the Discontinuance Office.
- If discontinuing during or after the sixth week of the semester (or third
week of the term or block), obtain signatures of individual class instructors
(student is now responsible for grades earned in class). The instructor
will indicate an official withdrawal (W) or an academically failing (WE)
- Submit discontinuance forms and be signed out by a Discontinuance Office
- Upon discontinuance, the student's ID will be electronically voided.
The Student Academic Record Appeals Committee has been established for
students who encounter situations involving non-academic extenuating circumstances
or emergencies potentially affecting their educational records that fall
outside the realm of normal university policy and procedure. The petition
process must be initiated within one year from the semester or term in
question. It is the student's responsibility to obtain the necessary supporting
information from the instructor, physician, employer, etc., to accompany
the request. Petition forms may be obtained in the Records Office (B-150
