This document explains the circumstances under which a late drop or withdrawal would be considered.
A dean’s permission to drop a class or withdraw (drop all classes) after the deadline is granted only under highly unusual circumstances beyond the student’s control. Examples would be serious illness or injury resulting in substantial class time missed, death of a close relative, and serious family emergencies. Students considering withdrawing should review the university information on Withdrawals , including the Medical Withdrawal process.
