After the initial add/drop period, typically the first week of class for each semester, students may no longer drop a class penalty free. They may, however, still withdraw from a class until a set date mid-semester. Withdrawing from a class before the fine day to withdraw will not effect the student’s GPA. There will simply be a “W” on the student’s academic transcript. The exact last day to withdraw is listed in the academic calendar for that semester, which can be found here. Students may only withdraw from 16 credit hours during their undergraduate career.
If a student chooses to withdraw from a class after the date listed in the academic calendar, they will receive a “WF” on their transcript, which will impact their GPA. This is the same as if they received an ‘F’ for the course.
