After add/drop period (the first 2 weeks/ 10th day of classes) students may withdraw from courses without academic penalty prior to or during the 4th week of classes. A grade of W (Withdrawal) will be recorded, which will not affect a student‟s GPA. After the fourth (4th) week of classes, a „WP‟ (Withdrawal – Pass) or „WF‟ (Withdrawal – Fail) will be input based on academic performance in the course, as determined by the faculty member teaching the course. (Please refer to the catalog to learn about the effects of these marks on CGPA.) Prior to withdrawal from courses, students are strongly recommended to consult with their academic advisor.
