Withdrawal Policy


Withdrawal

When a graduate student drops all university courses in a semester in which he or she is enrolled, the student must officially withdraw from the university. Students seeking to withdraw for non-medical or non-counseling reasons must notify the Office of Registrar of their official withdrawal (CAS@ecu.edu). A graduate student withdrawing from the university by the last day for graduate students to drop courses without grades will not receive grades in university courses for the semester. A graduate student withdrawing after the last day for graduate students to drop courses without grades will receive a grade of F for all university classes which he or she is failing at the time. The last day for a graduate student to drop a class without grades will be as close as practicable to 5:00 PM on the class day after 64% of the class days are completed for the term. During fall and spring terms, this corresponds to 5:00 PM on the 45th class day of the term. No retroactive withdrawals will be granted after classes have ended for the semester in which the student was enrolled.

Students withdrawing for medical or counseling reasons must apply for a medical withdrawal to the Office of the Dean of Students (http://www.ecu.edu/cs-studentaffairs/dos/medical_Withdrawals.cfm). The last day for a graduate student to drop a class without grades will be as close as practicable to 5:00 PM on the class day after 64% of the class days are completed for the term.  During fall and spring terms, this corresponds to 5:00 PM on the 45th class day of the term. No retroactive medical withdrawals will be granted after classes have ended for the semester in which the student was enrolled, except in the case of extraordinary medical, personal or family emergency, in the judgment of the dean of the Graduate School.
