Students are expected to attend the first class meeting of each course. After the first meeting, enrollment in the course is possible only with the permission of the adviser and the instructor. After the first week of classes, enrollment is possible only with the permission of the adviser, the instructor, and the Associate Dean. Permission to enter a course after five class meetings is given only in rare circumstances.
Withdrawal from a course after the first week requires the approval of the instructor and the adviser and the filing of a completed withdrawal form with the Registrar. A course may be dropped with a notation of “W” (withdrew) during the first five weeks of the semester. For courses dropped in the sixth through the eighth week, the notation is “WP” (withdrew passing) or “WF” (withdrew failing), depending on one’s performance at the time of withdrawal. After the eighth week, the notation is “WF.”
After the first week of the term, the hours for courses dropped, whether noted with W, WP, or WF, are included in the total hours attempted.
A decision to cease attending classes does not constitute withdrawal from a course. Withdrawal is official on the day the form, properly signed, is returned by the student to the Registrar.
Requests for medical withdrawal from individual classes are made to the Vice President and Dean of the College. For a request to be considered, the following conditions must be satisfied:
