Dropping classes is prohibited after the ninth week of a regular semester or a comparable time period for summer sessions. Specific deadlines are published in each Schedule of Classes so that students may make informed decisions within the appropriate time frame.
Requests for exception to this policy will be considered only for exceptional, non-academic reasons which are clearly beyond a student's control. These could consist of critical or persistent health problems, unforeseen changes in employment conditions (e.g., transfers, shift changes, or increased work hours), or similar circumstances.
Please be advised that students have the ability to drop before the deadline by a variety of means. Students may drop in person at the Registrars Office, or by contacting your Academic Advising office. Any holds on a student record may be temporarily lifted in order for a student to drop. Failure to take these measures when able will result in the petition being denied.
Your request for withdrawal will be treated with the greatest degree of confidentiality possible.
Petitions for late partial withdrawals will not be considered unless you provide documentation of the reason(s) leading to your request. You must submit this documentation along with the late partial withdrawal form.
Late Partial Withdrawal Procedure:
Submission of a petition is a request for exception and approval is not guaranteed.
