following mid-term. The last day to drop courses or withdraw from the university is
published in the University academic calendar.

Students with extraordinary circumstances that require them to leave the University
should seek an administrative withdrawal by submitting a request in writing with documentation

show direct cause for his/her hardship, and must appeal immediately after the hardship.
The instructor cannot change a grade to “W.”
- If a student receives approval for an administrative withdrawal after the published
date, the grade of “W” shall be assigned in all courses. If a student does not drop
courses or withdraw officially from the University, the grade of “F” shall be assigned
to all courses and he/she forfeits the right to a statement of honorable dismissal.
- The statute of limitations for an appeal of a change in official academic records
is 120 days after the end of the semester/session in which the grade is in question.
