Winter 2023 Late Drops/Withdrawals

Students should submit a separate petition for each course drop request. If you are enrolled in only one course, submit the semester withdrawal petition and not the single course drop petition.

NOTE: Approval of your late course drop or semester withdrawal petition does not guarantee a refund of tuition and fees, or financial aid. Please contact the Bursar’s Office or the Financial Aid Office regarding this.  For Winter and Summer session please contact College of Professional and Global Education (CPGE).
