Withdrawing From an Individual Course

Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students who wish to withdraw for an individual course should review the course withdrawal information contained in the 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 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 (available on Regis Resources) 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 Students

Graduate, doctoral and professional students who wish to withdraw from an individual course after the “add/drop” deadline may do so until the end of the withdrawal period deadline listed on the Academic Calendar. Prior to submitting the required Graduate Course Withdrawal Form, located on Regis Resources, students should contact their academic advisor to review academic status and contact the offices of Student Financial Planning and Student Accounts.
