Term Withdrawal

IMPORTANT! Withdrawing from the current term will remove all of your courses for the current semester. This includes any classes taken concurrently on multiple WSU campuses and through Global Campus.

A few questions will help you decide if term withdrawal is the right path for you.

Are you in the right place?

NOT enrolled in classes?
If you are NOT enrolled in classes for the current semester, there is nothing you need to do here.

Enrolled in classes for a future term?
If you are enrolled in classes for a future term that has not yet begun, and you have decided not to attend, you can drop all classes yourself in your myWSU Student Portal. Go to My Student Center > Enroll > Term > Drop, and then select the boxes next to each class. To complete your request, click on the Drop Selected Classes button, followed by the Finish Dropping button.

Alternatives to Term Withdrawal

If you are not certain about withdrawing from all of your classes, following are some alternatives that you may wish to consider.

Incomplete: If the semester is close to completion, and you believe a little extra time would be of help to complete your course and/or make up tests, consider talking to your instructor about the possibility of receiving an incomplete. An Incomplete Grade Agreement is required for each course in which an Incomplete grade is posted.

Drop or Withdraw from Individual Classes: You may drop a course without record through the 4th week of a semester, after which you can withdraw from individual courses through the 13th week (limits do apply – see Rule 68). Withdrawals result in a grade of “W” appearing on your transcript, which does not affect the grade point average. Important – reducing your course load may affect financial aid or other benefits. NOTE: Summer Session Dates and Deadlines are prorated and based on the length of a course.

Tuition Adjustment Policy

Students withdrawing for the term may be entitled to an adjustment of tuition based on the Tuition Adjustment Schedule. Note that the tuition adjustment policy may change as a result of revisions to governmental regulations.

Tuition Owed
You will be charged a Term Withdrawal Fee of 5% of the assessed tuition (up to $100) in addition to other amounts due. If you withdraw after the first 5 days of instruction, you will owe tuition and mandatory fees according to the schedule below.

For courses shorter than the regular 16-week session, the tuition adjustment will be prorated based on the weeks and dates of enrollment.
