A student may discontinue all of his/her courses (for the term) by withdrawing from the term.

A student need not withdraw from the term if he/she has not registered for the term. If the student withdraws from the term, he/she need not reapply for admission unless they are a guest student, a new admit who withdraws on or before the last day of drop/add period or a student who does not return within one year.

Withdrawals may be processed via Web or Walk-in registration during the first two weeks of the term. After this date, the process is initiated at the college in which the student is enrolled or Office of the Registrar (1169 UC). Forms for the purpose of withdrawing from the term may be picked up from the college in which the student is enrolled, Office of the Registrar, or from the "Registration and Records Forms" section. The completed form must be presented to Office of the Registrar for processing. The effective date of the withdrawal is the date the withdrawal is received in Office of the Registrar. Any monies paid in excess of the amount assessed will be refunded according to the procedure listed under "Refund Policy" within the "Payment Policy" section.

Permission to withdraw under circumstances other than stated above will require the approval of the student's academic unit.
