Effective Date: Fall 2017

Notes: Approved by Faculty Senate, May 6, 1971. Amended by the Representative Assembly, December 10, 1979. Amended at BUCC 4/26/95. Presented at the University Forum September 20, 1995. Presented at BUCC 2/6/08 as Information Item. Presented at University Forum 2/27/08 as Information Item. Revised by BUCC April 26, 2017. Presented at Forum on May 3, 2017.

After the schedule change period and continuing until the end of the tenth week of the semester, if a student withdraws from a course a grade of "W" will be recorded.

No withdrawals will be permitted after the end of the tenth week of the semester. For summer sessions and courses not taught on a regular semester basis, the Registrar will prorate the date appropriately.

Prior to the last week of classes, in exceptional circumstances, for compelling, justified and documented reasons, the Dean of the College in which the course is being taught may waive these restrictions. Poor academic performance will not constitute grounds for late withdrawal.

There is no limit to the number of courses from which a student may withdraw. Faculty are encouraged to include the University withdrawal policy on the syllabus distributed to students at the beginning of the semester.

*Students recommended to enroll in a replacement course (*See PRP 3360) within the same semester, as described in placement procedures, will not have a grade of W recorded for the original course if they enroll in the replacement course in the same semester.
