The last day for withdrawing from a Winter 2021 course(s) without failure by default is Friday, March 19.
What happens if a student withdraws from a course by the upcoming March 19 deadline?
- The course will appear on the student’s transcript with a notation of “W”
- Please note: This is not the same as “F” Failure
- It will be excluded from the calculation of a student’s cumulative GPA
- The course will be ineligible for any tuition refund
What is a Late Withdrawal?
After the March 19 deadline, there is a Late Withdrawal option to assist students who have become irretrievably behind in a course, and are not prepared to write final examinations.
How does a Late Withdrawal work?
- Late Withdrawal requests must be made by the last day of classes (April 14) via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The maximum number of units a student may request a Late Withdrawal for throughout their undergrad degree is 18 units.
- Requests for Late Withdrawal cannot be made in courses for which all course components have been completed.
- Students cannot use the Late Withdrawal option for courses in which they are under investigation or for which they have been found guilty of academic dishonesty.
- Approval of a late withdrawal is final, and requests to be re-enrolled in a withdrawn course will not be considered.
A course approved for Late Withdrawal will be:
- Assigned a non-numeric grade of LWD
- Excluded from the calculation of the GPA
- Ineligible for a tuition refund
