Once students have registered for a course, they are considered enrolled in that course until they have officially withdrawn from the course in the Records Office. Simply not attending class will not automatically terminate the student's enrollment in the course. A student who ceased attendance without first officially withdrawing from the course will receive a failing grade and will be charged full tuition and fees.

Total Withdrawal from the University

To withdraw totally from the University, a student must obtain the appropriate withdrawal form from Student Academic Services (SAS), Psychology Building, Room 232, secure the appropriate approval signatures, and return the completed form immediately to the Records Office for processing. Total withdrawals will not be processed after the last scheduled class day of the semester, this excludes finals week.
