University withdrawals

Withdrawing from all your courses in any one term constitutes a University withdrawal.

It is your responsibility to initiate the withdrawal process, non-attendance at classes does not constitute a University withdrawal. To view the University's Regulations Concerning University Withdrawal, click here.

Withdrawal Prior to the Deadline:

To withdraw from the University, you must withdraw from all your courses on Minerva BEFORE the deadline for University Withdrawal.

Withdrawal After the Deadline:

Withdrawal from the University after the University withdrawal deadline may be granted only under serious, well-documented circumstances.

Circumstances which can affect your ability to complete your studies, and which may constitute a valid basis to grant a University withdrawal past the withdrawal deadline include illness, unforeseen financial hardship, or serious family affliction.

If you wish to withdraw from the University after the University withdrawal deadline, you must submit your request with appropriate supporting documentation and the University Withdrawal Form to Service Point.
