Withdrawal from the University
It is expected that students enrolled in a graduate program will work diligently to complete the requirements of the degree. The University recognizes, however, that there may be extenuating circumstances why a student does not continuously enroll in graduate coursework due to disruptions caused by life events.
Withdrawing from the University after the add/drop period will result in a W grade on the transcript for each course in which the student is enrolled.
The W will not affect the student’s grade point average. All withdrawn courses count as attempted credits. This will be the case for the first 60% of a term. Any student who withdraws from the University during the final 40% of a term will receive grades as assigned by their instructors for all courses in which they are currently enrolled. These grades will be recorded on the student’s official academic record and will be included in the student’s grade point average.
If a student wishes to return to the University after withdrawing, he/ she is required to apply for reinstatement through the Academic Director. Reinstatement is not automatic.
