Withdrawal from Courses
A student wishing to withdraw from a course must complete a course withdrawal request available via MyGFU. Without submission of the request, a failing grade will be recorded for all courses involved. A course registration change fee will be assessed for all withdrawals. 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 10/15ths 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Withdrawn classes will receive a transcript record of “W” which does not calculate in a student’s grade point average.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 only available through the submission of an academic petition. Such a petition must demonstrate that the student’s circumstances were extenuating that prevented the withdrawal prior to the stated deadline. Approved withdrawals will also be subject to the course registration change fee. In the absence of an approved academic petition, the class instructor will assign the appropriate grade based on work completed for the course.
