If you find it necessary to leave the University, you must complete a withdrawal form which can be obtained from the Office of Counseling and Testing.
Withdrawing from the University means you are no longer enrolled in any courses for the remainder of the term. You do not have to reapply for admission if you return the next term.
If you are registered for only one course and wish to drop it, you are actually withdrawing from the university for the remainder of the term and must complete a withdrawal form instead of a drop/add form.
Whatever you do, do not just leave the University or stop attending class without completing the proper procedures to protect the integrity of your academic record. NOTE: Deadline dates for dropping courses are printed in the academic calendar.
You are not automatically dropped or withdrawn from the institution. You must complete the proper forms to make sure your academic record reflects the correct action.

"Dropping" a class means you want to withdraw from that particular course only. "Withdrawing" means you want to leave the University before the end of a semester and will not be enrolled in any courses for the remainder of the term.
Dropping a Class
You have completed registration, paid the required fees, and now want to drop a course.
This procedure must take place before the published deadline in order for no academic penalty to occur.
After the Last Day to Drop Without Academic Penalty you must have permission. Obtain a form from the Registrar's office. Get it signed by the instructor of the course and the appropriate department chairperson. This signed form must be brought to the Office of the Registrar to complete the process.
Note: Deadline dates for dropping courses are printed in the Academic Calendar.
