Withdrawals

Course Withdrawal

Students withdrawing from a course(s)* must do so officially by obtaining the Course Withdrawal Form from either their advisor or the Office of the Registrar. The Course Withdrawal Form must be signed by the student, academic advisor, and the course instructor (signature of instructor is required for courses in the School of Arts and Sciences, and the College Nursing and Health Sciences). Once all of the above signatures are obtained, the completed Course Withdrawal Form must be received by the Office of the Registrar within seven working days from the date signed by the academic advisor or by the published withdrawal deadline date, whichever comes first. The effective date of course withdrawal will be the date on which the notice is received by the academic advisor.

No withdrawals (university or course) will be accepted after the deadline. This policy is strictly enforced.

*If student is withdrawing from all coursework within a semester, a University Withdrawal Form must be completed whether the student is returning the next semester or is permanently leaving the university.

It is the responsibility of the student to initiate a withdrawal during the designated withdrawal period. Otherwise, an F grade will be issued at the end of the term.

Official University Withdrawal

Students withdrawing from the University must do so officially by submitting a written notice of withdrawal to the dean of their respective school before the deadline for withdrawing (dates for each semester/term are available online at http://www.barry.edu/classschedule). The effective date of withdrawal will be the date on which the notice is received by the dean. The university withdrawal form must be signed by the academic advisor and the dean, and then sent to the office of Financial Aid and lastly to the Office of the Registrar for final processing.
