Withdrawal

If a student withdraws after the published Physical Education course deadline, the student is responsible for the course fee and a late drop fee. If the student withdraws from the course prior to the published University Course Drop Deadline, the course will not appear on the student's transcript. If the student withdraws from the course after the published University Course Drop Deadline, a W will appear on the student's transcript.

If a student wishes to withdraw from a course to avoid a failing grade, they must do so before the last scheduled class of the course.  Once a course is completed for the semester, no further drops or withdrawals are permitted.
