Withdrawal from Courses

A student wishing to withdraw from a course must complete the “drop classes” action available in the Student Center in MyGFU. Without submission of the request, a failing grade will be recorded for all courses involved. Withdrawal from a course is available following the add/drop period and prior to the “last date to withdraw” from the course. The “last date to withdraw” is at the end of the 10th week of the semester (or 10/16ths of the class session for partial term courses).

Withdrawn classes will receive a transcript record of “W” which does not calculate in a student’s grade point average. Failure to withdraw from a course prior to the last date to withdraw will result in a failing grade or posting of “earned grade” by the course instructor. Late withdrawal from a course (after the “last date to withdraw”) is available from the end of the withdraw period through the last day of the semester or session by contacting the Registrar’s Office. This results in a grade of “WF,” which calculates as an “F” (0.00 grade points) in a student’s grade point average, but does indicate that the student attempted to withdraw prior to the last day of the semester or session.
