Withdrawal from the University

This is an archived copy of the 2015-2016 catalog. To access the most recent version of the catalog, please visit http://catalog.twu.edu.

Any student who finds it necessary to withdraw from all semester credit hour classes must formally withdraw through the Office of Student Life on the Denton campus or the Student Life Coordinator on the Dallas or Houston campus. The effective date of withdrawal is the day upon which the completed Request for Withdrawal Form is received from the student and approved by the Student Life Office.

Withdrawal requests must be submitted by the withdrawal deadline for the term in which the student seeks to withdraw, as posted in the term’s academic calendar (www.twu.edu/academics ). A student who withdraws on or up to the census day of a term as listed in the academic catalog will have no record of course work on the transcript. A student who withdraws after the census day and before the last day to drop without penalty would receive a grade of “W,” regardless of the reason to withdraw. 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.
