Withdrawal for Non-Attendance
A student is expected to attend all classes. Click here for information on class attendance and the mandatory attendance policy for developmental classes.
Students who are absent one-half or more of the class meetings of a full semester length fall/spring class without excuse during weeks two through four may be notified by letter to their mailing address of the possibility of their being administratively withdrawn from their class. The students so notified will be given until the end of the seventh week (mid-term) to meet with their instructors to resolve the situation. If the situation is not resolved by the end of the seventh week (mid-term), the instructor of the class may complete the process of an administrative withdrawal of the student. A grade of "W" (withdrawal) will be assigned. A "W" means the student cannot receive credit for the course without future re-enrollment in the course.
Administrative withdrawal for non-attendance does not apply to classes that meet less than the full term or for summer classes.
Merely not attending a course does not automatically remove the course from a studentís record. Students who do not accept the responsibility of completing a Schedule Revision or Withdrawal From the Semester/Term jeopardize their record with the possibility of incurring an F in a course not properly dropped.
NOTE: effective fall 2006, the University no longer cancels students'
classes for failure to settle their account with the Bursar; enrolled students
must take action to drop/withdraw themselves from any classes.
