Withdrawal from the University

This is an archived copy of the 2014-2015 catalog. To access the most recent version of the catalog, please visit http://catalog.twu.edu.

A student who finds it necessary to withdraw from all credit classes must formally withdraw from the university through the Office of Student Life on the Denton campus or the Student Life Coordinator on the Dallas or Houston campuses. The effective date of withdrawal is the day upon which the student submits the completed Request for Withdrawal Form, and it is approved in the appropriate office.

A student who withdraws on or up to the 12th class day or the 4th day of summer school will have no record of coursework on the transcript. A student who withdraws after the 12th class day or the 4th day of summer school and before the last day to drop without penalty will receive a grade of ‘W.’ After the last date to withdraw without penalty, the grade of ‘WF’ is assigned, unless the student withdraws for medical reasons or a ‘W’ is recommended by the instructor.

A student whose medical or psychological health condition precludes class attendance may be withdrawn from Texas Woman’s University effective on the date and under the conditions specified at the time of the withdrawal. A student who requests medical withdrawal must submit adequate written documentation from the treating physician along with an official TWU Withdrawal Form to the Associate Vice President for Student Life. Please note that a medical withdraw does not qualify a student for a refund.
