ISSUED BY: James Matta, Ph.D. Interim Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs

EFFECTIVE DATE: Fall 2005

NOTES: Approved by Representative Assembly, March 11, 1981. Amended by the approval of Policy #3439 Student Scheduling Policy. Approved by CCAA, 3/7/84. Approved by RAX 3/21/84. Approved by RA, 4/4/84. Approved by BUCC 2/28/96. Presented to the University Forum April 3, 1996. Revised by BUCC 1/26/2005. Reported to the University Forum 2/2/2005.

After the schedule change period and continuing until three weeks past mid-term, if a student withdraws from a course a grade of "W" will be recorded. As a means of notification of the instructor to the intent to withdraw, a student is required to obtain his/her instructor's, or chair of instructor's department, signature on the withdrawal form.

No withdrawals will be permitted after the close of the work day three weeks after the middle day of the semester. For summer sessions and courses not taught on a regular semester basis, the Registrar will prorate the date appropriately.

Prior to the last week of classes, in exceptional circumstances, for compelling, justified and documented reasons, the Dean of the College in which the course is being taught may waive these restrictions. Poor academic performance will not constitute grounds for withdrawal.

A limit of four (4) withdrawals during the degree program shall apply. (Withdrawal from the University is an exception). Faculty are encouraged to include the University withdrawal policy on the syllabus distributed to students at the beginning of the semester.
