The School of Commerce only allows class withdrawals from 1000-2000 level Commerce classes.

DON'T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO WITHDRAW FROM A CLASS AS THE CLOCK ON YOUR COMPUTER COULD BE BEHIND THE INTERNAL CLOCK IN SIS. "SIS TIME" COUNTS - NOT THE TIME ON YOUR COMPUTER.
To get started, go to the drop tab in your SIS Student Center. Use the DROP transaction for the desired class. When you get the message about withdrawing, click on the "Request Class Withdrawal" link and follow the directions.
- The School of Commerce only allows class withdrawals from 1000-2000 level Commerce classes.

- The School of Law does not allow class withdrawals after the add/drop deadline except by petition for good cause. Please contact the Assistant Dean of Academic Services for details.

- This process cannot be used to withdraw from the University (e.g., from all of your classes). If you are planning to withdraw from the University, please contact your school of enrollment.
Please visit the SIS Help Center for Frequently Asked Questions.
As of the first day of the semester, dropping all courses requires withdrawing from the University. A percentage of the tuition will be charged, pro-rated based on the week in which the withdrawal is effective. Contact your dean to complete the necessary paperwork. Withdrawals can be made for personal, medical, or uniformed services reasons.
Withdrawals from individual courses after the drop deadline, while remaining registered in other courses, can be made according to the schedule set by the individual schools.
