Withdrawal From All Classes for the Current Term
If you are considering an academic withdrawal from the current term, please discuss your situation with your academic advisor to consider all of your options .
When you withdraw from ALL your classes during a term:
- You will not receive a grade or credit for those classes.
- You will receive a “W” for all passing or failing coursework for each withdrawn class on your transcript
- Your GPA is not affected.
- Your hours attempted will include the classes from which you withdrew after the Last Day to Add or Drop Without a “W” Deadline.
However, there are other implications associated with withdrawing from courses including:
- Financial Aid eligibility for this and future terms
- Residence hall eligibility
The last day to withdraw from all classes for the Spring and Fall Term is the next to the last day of classes for full-term courses. To see the dates for the current term, go to the Academic Calendar.
To withdraw from all classes, please use one of the following methods:
- Complete the Student Withdrawal Form and email to PSC-Records@mail.wvu.edu, fax to 304-788-6939 or mail to Office of Enrollment Services, 75 Arnold Street, Keyser, WV 26726
- Email from your MIX Email Account to PSC-Records@mail.wvu.edu
Please include the following:
· Full Name
· WVUID number
· Permanent Address
· Telephone number
· Reason for withdrawal
If you live in college housing, you should vacate housing and turn in keys via the proper procedure. Check with Housing Office at 304-788-7407 or firstname.lastname@example.org for procedural details.
If you still have a Mountie Bounty balance 125 days after withdrawing from the College, you will be charged a $10 account processing fee. To avoid this, go to mymountaineercard.wvu.edu to check your balance. You can either spend it at participating locations or request a refund.
If you receive financial aid, please discuss the impact of the withdrawal prior to submitting, with the Financial Aid staff in the Office of Enrollment Services at 75 Arnold Street or by calling 304-788-6820 or emailing PSC-FinAid@mail.wvu.edu
Financial aid recipients who withdraw from ALL classes before 60% of the term is completed may be required to return a portion of any financial aid which was received for the term. Students who do not receive at least one passing grade for classes in a term must provide documentation which verifies continued participation in educational activities.
If documentation cannot be provided, those students are considered to have informally withdrawn from WVU prior to 60% of the term and may be required to return a portion of any financial aid which was received. This review and return of financial aid is done in accordance with federal regulations.
It is your responsibility to ensure all of your University bills are paid and all required forms are received and processed. Your withdrawal becomes official only after your withdrawal request is received and processed by the Office of Enrollment Services. A withdrawal from all classes constitutes withdrawal from the University for the current term only.
No longer attending a course(s) is not a withdrawal and will result in failing grades for the term.
Students who are called to active military service must submit a copy of their deployment orders to the Office of Enrollment Services.
