A limited number of uncontested (peremptory) withdrawals from individual courses will be permitted from the sixth day of the quarter through the end of the sixth week of instruction according to the following schedule:
|No. of credits earned||No. of uncontested course withdrawals permitted|
One uncontested withdrawal will be permitted for each 45 credits after 180 credits. This applies to all students regardless of enrollment classification.
Transfer credits will be included in the calculation for eligibility for uncontested withdrawal.
Peremptory withdrawals will be noted on the student's transcript with "+W". Unused withdrawal allocations will not be cumulative. Class rosters will reflect the +W for students who have used their peremptory withdrawal.
Withdrawals after the sixth week of instruction or when the allotted peremptory withdrawals have been used, will be granted only for reasons of hardship and then only upon written petition to and written approval by the Registrar. The student must contact the course instructor and obtain the faculty member's signature on the hardship withdrawal petition. The signature serves merely to acknowledge the petition and implies neither support nor rejection of the request. The Registrar may consult with affected faculty when evaluating a petition and will notify the instructor if the hardship withdrawal has been approved. Hardship withdrawals will be noted on the student's transcript with an "HW" (hardship withdrawal). Hardship withdrawals from individual courses will not be permitted during or after the final examination period.
Conversions of incompletes to withdrawals must be petitioned as if they were hardship withdrawals, i.e., they may be effected only upon petition to the Registrar. Withdrawals will not be included in calculating grade point averages.
There are no tuition refunds in cases of withdrawal from individual courses.
