Course and College Withdrawal Process

Withdrawal from an Individual Course

Undergraduate Students

Students should review the course withdrawal information contained in the Regis College Academic Catalog. In addition, students should consult with their faculty advisor before making a final decision about withdrawing from a course.

A student who would like to drop a course after the “Add/Drop” deadline indicated on the Regis Academic Calendar, may also do so by withdrawing from a course.

If a student is failing a course at the time of their withdrawal, they will receive a “Withdrawal/Failure” or “W/F” designation, which may affect their academic standing.

Students intending to withdraw from a course must complete a Regis Course Withdrawal Form and obtain all required signatures.

Students who drop below 12 credits as a result of withdrawing from a course must consult with Residential Life, Health Services, Financial Aid, and Athletics regarding the potential impact associated with course withdrawal and dropping below full-time status.

Graduate, Institute of Advancing Studies and Regis North Students

Graduate students should inform their faculty member, Graduate Academic Affairs, or the Center for Students Services, css@regiscollege.edu. Regis North or IAS students should contact the Academic & Admission Advisor for Regis North, Alexandra Gryta, alexandra.gryta@regiscollege.edu if they wish to withdraw from a course.
