Operational policy and procedure regarding withdrawal from courses
POLICY UNDER REVIEW
(A) Individual course withdrawals may be processed from the first day of classes through the tenth week of the semester, with appropriate proportional adjustments for courses of shorter duration. The student should consult the current "Schedule of Classes" booklet for specific dates.
(B) Individual course withdrawals are disallowed after the tenth week of the semester. After that time, the student is considered to be committed to the course and must complete it for a regular grade.
(C) The only mark given to a student withdrawing from an individual course during the first ten weeks of the semester will be a "W." This is an administrative withdrawal without evaluation.
(D) The signature of the instructor as required on the course withdrawal form as acknowledgment of withdrawal by a student. Laboratory checkout, fee payment and any other arrangements related to the course must be completed at this time.
(E) Any variation from this rule for reasons of extenuating circumstances requires the approval of the student's academic dean.
