Course Withdrawal/Withdrawal from the University
COURSE WITHDRAWAL/WITHDRAWAL FROM THE UNIVERSITY
It is the student’s responsibility to notify the University in the event that he or she needs to withdraw from a course(s) or withdraw from the University entirely.
Graduate students may withdraw from a course(s) prior to its completion under the following conditions:
1. Students must have approval from their graduate director.
2. Students must file a course withdrawal form with their graduate director’s office by the “Last day for withdrawal from classes,” published in the Academic Calendar, located in the current edition of this catalog, and located on the University’s Web site, www.lasalle.edu.
Please be advised that the date of filing the withdrawal notice is considered as the date of withdrawal from the class(es).
3. Students should consult with their financial aid counselor (see catalog for refund policy) and/or veteran’s benefits coordinator to understand how this change in their enrollment status may affect their aid. Additionally, international students should contact one of the international education associates at the Multicultural and International Center.
Ceasing to attend a class does not constitute a withdrawal; students must officially withdraw by filling out the course withdrawal form in their graduate director’s office. Ceasing to attend without officially withdrawing will result in the student receiving a grade for the course, possibly a failing grade. A “W” designation will only be assigned upon official withdrawal from a course.
