Students may withdraw from individual courses until the Friday of the tenth week of class (or Friday of the fourth week in a six-week summer session, or Friday of the second week of a three-week summer session). If you follow all established procedures and withdraw before the published deadline, you will receive a "W" on your transcript. Grade-point averages are not affected in any way by this mark.
If you need to withdraw from the last class you are enrolled in, then you must withdraw from the current term. Please consult the online information on Withdrawal from College.
Before withdrawing from individual classes, consult your advisor to determine if:
- Your course load would be reduced below the minimal number of hours required to qualify fro financial aid, varsity athletic competition, or international full-time student status;
- The courses to be dropped are required to fulfill academic probationary conditions;
- The courses from which you want to withdraw might be corequisite with other courses you are taking, or prerequisite to other courses required for the next term.
After reviewing these parameters with your advisor, then you may withdraw from individual classes in STAR via the WVU Portal.
