Policies Affecting Student Status

WITHDRAWAL FROM A COURSE PRIOR TO THE 9th WEEK OF CLASS

Students may withdraw from a course anytime between the 10th day of class and the 9th week of classes. The course remains on the academic transcript with the grade of W and is not calculated into the grade point average.  Withdrawal forms are available in Student Services in the Dean’s Office, the Registrar’s Office and the Chair’s office. In spite of the directions on the current Withdrawal form, students only need signatures of the instructor and the advisor.  The completed form may be dropped off at the Registrar’s Office in Waterman.

Students receiving financial aid who wish to withdraw form a class(s) during the first 9 weeks, may lose partial financial aid, depending upon when they withdraw. Students should contact  Student Services in the CALS Dean’s Office, or the Financial Aid office at 330 Waterman Building, 656-3156 with questions concerning their funding.

LATE WITHDRAWAL FROM A COURSE

Requests to withdraw from a course after the 9-week deadline are seldom granted. The UVM catalogue states “such petitions must contain conclusive evidence, properly documented of the illness or other situation which prevents completion of the course(s). Acceptable reasons do not include dissatisfaction with performance or expected grade, with course  instructor, or desire to change major or program.”

Students wishing to withdraw for medical or personal reasons should contact Student Services in the CALS Dean’s Office, 106 or call Student Services at 656-2980. Students who wish to withdraw from a course(s) for other than medical or personal reasons, may petition the College Studies committee. Information on this process is available in Student Services in the CALS Dean’s Office.
