What is the difference between a Late Drop and a Late Withdrawal?
A Late Drop and a Late Withdrawal are the same as a Drop or Withdrawal except that they are petitioned after their respective deadlines. Please check the Academic Calendar for dates. If approved, a Late Drop results in a full refund of tuition fees and the complete removal of the course from the student’s academic record. If a late withdrawal is approved, the student will receive a WL grade. This will not affect their GPA. If approved, a late withdrawal does not refund tuition, and/or the student is still fee liable for the late withdrawn courses.
Can my professor withdraw me from his/her course?
No. Your professor can support your decision to petition but does not have the authority to approve your petition. If your petition is approved your professor’s input will determine if you receive a “Withdraw Passing” (WP) or a “Withdraw Failing” (WF) for the course. Talk to your professor before pursuing a Late Withdrawal petition.
