    Withdrawals are not permitted during the final week of instruction. Only extenuating circumstances will be considered. You are required to obtain approval from the Instructor, Department Chair, and Dean on your finished form before turning it in to Enrollment Services. Enrollment Services will then forward the form to the University Provost to seek final approval.

    Students are obligated to officially withdraw from the course, regardless of whether they attended. Non-attendance in a course, notifying the instructor, or stopping payment on a check does not officially constitute dropping or withdrawing from a course. Students utilizing these methods without submitting an add/drop form to CPIE will be graded appropriately in the course. In the case of a stop payment order or non-sufficient funds the student is also financially liable for the bad check.

    When you stop participating in class and withdraw after the second week and prior to the final three weeks of instruction, the class will be included on your transcript with a W symbol. Visit Dropping vs. Withdrawing for detailed information.
