Student Center - Withdrawing from a Term

This document explains how to withdraw from a term in the Student Center

A Withdrawal is a request to drop all classes in the selected term with the intention of leaving the University.  Because of the potential consequences of a withdrawal, a submitted withdrawal request will go through your academic dean for review before being sent to the Office of the Registrar to be processed. For more information on the withdrawal process, please review the Term Withdrawal FAQ.

To WITHDRAW from a Term:

  1. Go to the TERM WITHDRAWAL tab or Term Withdrawal link.
  2. Select the appropriate term.
  3. Click the green CONTINUE button to navigate through the next series of screens.
  4. On the last screen, confirm your withdrawal request by clicking on the green button FINISH WITHDRAWING.
