Once students are registered in courses, their names are part of the official enrolment record and grades will be assigned.
Students wishing to withdraw from courses must withdraw in writing. The responsibility for initiating withdrawal rests with the student.
Ceasing to attend classes or advising the course instructor of intended withdrawal is not sufficient to register a formal withdrawal.
Withdrawal from a course is done by submitting a Course Change form, or letter (containing all the relevant information from a Course Change form) to the Registrar’s Office. Distance students must complete Distance Learning procedures or inform the Registrar’s Office in writing. The official date of withdrawal is the date the form or letter is received and date-stamped in the Registrar’s Office. Students should take this into account when meeting withdrawal deadlines – see Academic Course Add/Drop Dates.
Students who withdraw from a course after these dates or who do not complete the course requirements will automatically receive failures. Consideration will be given by the appropriate Dean to students who are forced to withdraw past the deadlines due to unusual circumstances. See Regulations Governing “WP” Grades.
