     VOLUNTARY WITHDRAWAL POLICY

Students may withdraw from the entire semester, thus, the university before the last day of classes of a semester, although the effective date of withdrawal is that on which all forms are completed, signed and returned to the appropriate offices. Students withdrawing receive a “W” for each course in which they are enrolled. Failure to complete a withdrawal form will result in the recording of the grade of “F” for all courses at the end of the term.

To withdraw from the university, a student must do the following:

- consult with a member of the University Advising Center, who will provide and sign a withdrawal form
- receive clearance from any University office in which financial charges have been accrued. These offices may be the library, the Health Services Office, the Bursar’s Office, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, the Office of Financial Aid Services, the bookstore, and the science laboratories.
