Withdrawal Policy—Dropping a Course or Courses

University Withdrawal Policy—Dropping All Courses
Before the end of the twelfth week of classes during any regular semester, a student reports to the Registrar Service Center in 107 Moulton Hall or writes to the Office of the University Registrar at Campus Box 2202 to withdraw from the University.
