Withdrawal from the University
Withdrawal in person:
In the event that a student desires to withdraw from the University, these procedures must be followed:
- Obtain Withdrawal from University form in the Dean of Students
Office (McCarthy College Center, Room 504) and at this time review procedure for possible readmission at a future date with a staff person.
- Obtain signature from the Dean of Students.
- Obtain signature from the Office of Residence Life (if applicable).
- Obtain signature from the Financial Aid Office.
- Obtain signature from the Student Accounts Office.
- Return the completed withdrawal form to the Office of the Registrar.
Withdrawal via Fax:
Occasionally, due to extenuating circumstances, a student will need to withdraw from the University but cannot do it in person.
In that case, a letter can be faxed to the Office of the Registrar (508-626-4589), which includes the student's name, student ID number, student's signature, and contact information and the effective date of withdrawal.
Students officially withdrawing from the College after the Course Add/Drop period and before the deadline of the Course Withdrawal period (prior to the end of the ninth week of the semester; see semester calendar) will receive a notation of "WX" in all courses. If withdrawal from the College is attempted after the end of the Course Withdrawal period, students will receive a final grade in all courses. Students with extraordinary circumstances (such as documented hospitalization or sickness) should consult with the Dean of Students Office. Note: Retroactive withdrawals are only granted based on extenuating circumstances.
All completed withdrawal forms must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar. Note: A student is not officially withdrawn from the University until the appropriate form has been completed and has been validated by the Office of the Registrar. Non-attendance does not constitute withdrawal from the University.
Return after Withdrawal:
1. A student who withdraws from the University in good academic standing without completing baccalaureate studies may return to the University upon written request to the Admissions Office. To insure return at the time desired, the student must make such a request to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions before August 1st, for the Fall semester, or before December 1, for the Spring semester. Requests received later than these dates may result in a
semester’s delay in the return of the student to the University.
2. In determining “good standing”, the University will consider academic and social records (University judicial record), as well as financial records of the applicant student.
3. Students who have withdrawn for more than one semester must follow degree requirements stated in the University Catalog at the time of return.*
4. Students should refer to the University’s policy on refunds as outlined in the University Expenses section of the current catalog.
*Matriculate undergraduate students attending the Day Division or Continuing Education Division who do not enroll in the subsequent fall or spring semester are considered inactive (withdrawn). To insure return at the time desired, the student must make such a request to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions before August 1st for the fall semester or before December 1st for the spring semester. Requests received later than these dates may result in a semester’s delay in the return of the student to the University.
