Withdrawals can be necessary for any number of reasons. There are two different categories of withdrawals. When contemplating a withdrawal, whether one course or all courses, it is advisable to discuss your plans with your academic advisor. Additionally, you will want to review the withdrawal deadline dates in the Office of the Registrar’s calendar of events. A W-Withdrawal still retains its attempted hours and appears on your transcript, but has no impact on your GPA. A WF-Withdrawal Failure appears on your transcript and translates as a failure with respect to the calculation of your GPA. In addition, because of the short duration of summer school sessions, summer school charges are not refundable after the add/drop period.
