Students who wish to resign must complete an official form available in the University College office (for undergraduate students) or in their academic dean’s office (for graduate students). Grades of W are posted through the last day to drop a course or resign. After that date, students will not be permitted to drop a course or resign from the university. Exceptional cases, such as one involving a major illness or accident, may be presented to the student’s academic dean for resolution or processing. A resignation form requires the signatures of the student, academic dean, and the director of Financial Aid. In addition, students receiving financial aid may be required to submit a form signed by instructors verifying class attendance, however slight, during the semester or session in question to the Financial Aid office.
A student who leaves the university without properly completing a resignation form will receive grades of F (or FNA) or U (or UNA) in all courses. A student who voluntarily withdraws from the university during a regular semester or summer session is considered a continuing student for purposes of registration for the next semester or session. A student on probation cannot remove his or her probationary status without completing the semester.
