How do I order an official transcript of my academic record?
For information on ordering an official transcript, please visit our transcript page.
Please note: no transcript can be issued until all financial obligations to the University have been satisfactorily met. Transcript requests will not be accepted by fax, phone or e-mail.
How do I withdraw from a course?
Students who choose to withdraw from a course must submit a Course Withdrawal eform. You can use this link or access the eForms through the portal. In the portal, click “Tools” and then “eForms Central.” Next, select “Forms” and then “Registrar.” Finally, choose “Course Withdraw.”
In order to receive a “W” designation for a course, students must withdraw on or before the deadline date for that semester. The withdrawal deadline date for each semester is published in the academic calendar.
Students should also consult with their Financial Aid Counselor and/or Veteran Benefit Certifying Official to understand how this change in their enrollment may affect their aid. Additionally, International Students should contact one of the International Education Associates at the Multi-cultural and International Center.
Ceasing to attend a class does not constitute a withdrawal. Ceasing to attend without 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.
