Withdrawals After the Deadline

A request for a grade of "W" (past the deadline date) is properly made on a Petition to Withdraw After the Deadline form, available in the Registrar's Office.

  • The petition must be completed and signed by the student's instructor(s).
  • The petition must be accompanied by documentation sufficient to support the extenuating circumstances claimed.

No student will be allowed to withdraw from a course after the final class day of the term except via the petition process.

Students withdrawing from all classes during the refund period are entitled to a refund of a portion of the fees paid for the course(s). Students should check the Registration Bulletin to determine the date and amount of refund (if any) available. No refunds are made for partial withdrawal.

Withdrawal from Courses During Summer Term

Special rules apply to withdrawing during summer because of the various start dates for summer parts-of-term. See the registrar's web site (WWW.SPSU.EDU/Registration) for additional details.
