An explanation of the process for withdrawing from a graduate program.
There are no definitions for this policy at this time.
Withdrawal from a Graduate Program or from Non-degree Status
On occasion, a matriculated graduate student may wish to withdraw from a graduate program. Similarly, a non-degree (non-matriculated) graduate student may wish to withdraw from non- degree status
In either case, the student must take two actions:
1. Withdraw from either graduate program membership or from non-degree status by providing written notification to the Graduate School of his/her intent to withdraw from either the graduate program or from non-degree status. Note: If a matriculated student withdraws from classes, but not from his/her program, s/he will continue to be listed as a graduate student. Over time, the student in such a circumstance would continue to be notified about policy violations and would eventually be dematriculated for lack of registration (See Graduate Continuous Enrollment Policy).
2. Withdraw from courses. Contact the Office of Registration and Records for information on course withdrawal.
Note: Withdrawal from a graduate program or from non-degree status does not automatically withdraw students from courses.
