The Unofficial Withdrawal Policy assists the University in administering its
Title IV federal financial aid program. Department of Education regulations
require the return of disbursed federal financial aid received by students
who do not attend and participate in courses for which they are not enrolled.
The University must adjust the federal financial aid of all students who either
never report or stop attending and participating within the first 60 percent
of the semester. For the Fall 2012 semester, the 60 percent mark falls on March 23, 2013.
In previous years, "UW" and "NR" grades reported as final grades did not affect a student's grade point average. But henceforth, students who never attend or stop attending without officially withdrawing will adversely affect their grade point averages through the failing grades they will earn at the end of the semester.
If you find it necessary to drop a course, you are required to complete the transaction no later than Friday, April 5.
