Withdrawal Policy

COURSE WITHDRAWAL

Students may withdraw from a course(s) prior to its completion under the following conditions:

1. Students must have approval from their Dean’s office.

2. Students must file a Course Withdrawal form with their Dean’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 and/or veteran’s benefits certifying official 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 Dean’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.

WITHDRAWAL FROM THE UNIVERSITY

Students who opt to withdraw from the University must do the following:

1. Complete the Withdrawal from the University form and Non- Returning Student Questionnaire in their Dean’s office. Students must withdraw on or before 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. After this date, grades will be assigned that reflect the result of entire semester’s attendance and performance in the course.

Please be advised that the date of filing the Withdrawal from the University form is considered as the date of withdrawal from the class(es) and the University.

2. Meet with an Assistant Dean in their Dean’s Office. Athletes must first meet with the Director of Academic Support for Athletes.

3. Contact the offices of Student Financial Services and Student and Accounts Receivable to determine whether an outstanding balance is due, to inquire about the financial implications of withdrawal, and to make arrangements to meet financial obligations.

4. Contact the Housing Services Coordinator and Food Services, if liv­ing on campus or having a meal plan.

5. If applicable, students should also consult their veteran’s benefits certifying official to understand how this change in their enrollment sta­tus may affect their future aid. Additionally, international students should contact one of the international education associates at the Multicultural and International Center.

Ceasing to attend classes does not constitute a withdrawal from the University; students must officially withdraw by filling out the With­drawal from the University form in their Dean’s office. Ceasing to attend without officially withdrawing will result in the student receiving grades for all coursework, possibly failing grades. A “W” designation will only be assigned to coursework upon official withdrawal from the University.

La Salle University does not grant students a leave of absence. Students who wish to leave the University temporarily during a semester must file a request for withdrawal through their Dean as indicated in the section above.
