Dropping Classes Before the Add/Drop Deadline
If you wish to drop a class, please visit MyMAP and do so before the add/drop deadline to prevent any charges.
Dropping ALL Classes
If you do not take classes for credit for one semester, you will be taking a leave of absence. You cannot take a leave of absence the first semester you’re admitted.
Note: If you drop all of your classes once the semester or term has begun, a withdraw date will be recorded on your transcript.
Dropping Classes After the Add/Drop Deadline
- You may choose to withdraw from a class after the add/drop deadline, which will result in a "W" grade.
- You have the flexibility to make a withdrawal decision until the 10th week of a semester or the 6th week of a term.
- The "W" grade assigned to your transcript is considered neutral and doesn't affect your GPA.
- Please be aware that withdrawing may have implications for your scholarship, financial aid, tuition, housing, or employment if your credit hours fall below a certain threshold.
Have scholarships or financial aid?
After the Withdraw Deadline
If a non-academic extenuating circumstance arises after the Withdraw deadline, you may petition to be withdrawn. If the petition is denied, you will get whatever grade you’ve earned in the class.
If you do not want to withdraw, but would like to finish the class, you may request an Incomplete Contract if you have attended and are passing the class at the time of the withdrawal deadline.
Withdrawing ALL Classes
Go to the Semester/Term Withdrawal website to learn how to withdraw from all of your classes. If you do not finish classes for one semester, you will be taking a leave of absence.
The university reserves the right to assign a failing grade for academic dishonesty reasons even if you are able to withdraw yourself from the class before the failing grade has been assigned.
