Undergraduate students may receive a grade of “W” for no more than 16 credit hours over their academic careers. Students who withdraw under approved extenuating circumstances will receive “WE” grades that do not count against this 16-hour limit. Both types of withdrawal are subject to all financial aid and satisfactory academic progress rules.

Leaving the University without completing the official withdrawal process may result in the assignment of a temporary or failing course grade. Students who are unable to withdraw from a course but stop attending anyway must accept whatever grade the instructor assigns (most often an F) for their partial work.
