Withdrawals are issued to students wishing to withdraw from any or all courses if the official withdrawal process is completed by the automatic withdrawal deadline dates printed in the current class schedule. A grade of W will appear on student transcripts when students complete the official withdrawal process with the appropriate approval. After the automatic withdrawal deadline, the grade awarded will be an F or W as determined by the instructor. Withdrawal after the automatic deadline is not automatic and requires approval of the College of Health and Human Services dean or the dean's representative; permission will be granted only in extraordinary circumstances. W is an option after the withdrawal deadline only if the student is passing. A grade of FN will be recorded on the official transcript if a student stops attending but does not officially withdraw from class.
