Withdrawal From Classes
Students desiring to withdraw from one or more classes before the midpoint of the term may do so by:
- Completing a Request to Withdraw at the Registrar's Office
- Or withdrawing through the Web-based registration system
- Or by sending a signed fax or letter to the registrar's office
After doing so, the student will be assigned a grade of "W" for those course(s). While a grade of "W" does not count in the student's cumulative grade point average, it does count in attempted hours for financial aid purposes and could affect a student's eligibility for aid if there are repeated withdrawals.
Refunds associated with withdrawals are made only in the case where a student withdraws completely from all classes for a term.
Refunds are based on the date of the withdrawal and are pro-rated. By University System of Georgia rule, refunds are not initiated for withdrawing from a portion of registered classes.
Withdrawing After the Mid-Point
Students who withdraw after the midpoint of the term are not eligible for a grade of "W" except in cases of hardship or extenuating circumstances as approved by the faculty. (See Administrative Procedures for instructions.) Students withdrawing after the withdrawal deadline date receive a grade of "WF" for the course(s), which counts the same as an "F" for grade point purposes.
