The College publishes all add/drop, withdrawal deadlines, and payment deadlines in the Enrollment Guide and on the Student Refund and Academic Calendar. When they register for classes, students are responsible for adhering to these dates and deadlines and understanding their financial obligations. The institution is also sensitive to the fact that students may face extenuating circumstances beyond their control after deadlines have passed. For this reason, the College offers students the ability to petition for a withdrawal after the deadline or a grade change (“F” to “W”), provided they can present appropriate documentation. Only petitions with acceptable documentation will be considered for up to one year after the circumstance.
Student may only request a Special Circumstance for Withdrawal for one of the following reasons:
