Failure to Withdraw/Grade Requital

You must meet all the following requirements to be eligible for Grade Requital:

  1. You received all grades of "FW" for a semester.

  2. You didn't complete the semester or take the final exam(s).

  3. You didn't officially withdraw from any course during the same semester.

  4. You were unable to withdraw from courses due to circumstances beyond your control. Proof of your circumstances is required. Examples of circumstances that might be considered include:

    • medical
    • military call-up
    • sudden and unexpected relocation
    • institutionalization

Not having read the withdrawal policies will not be considered a reason for grade requital.

Appeal Process

If you meet all of the above criteria, you may appeal to have your grades of F changed to grades of "O".

To be considered for grade requital, complete the Grade Requital for Failure to Withdraw form with your advisor. This written appeal must include documentation from your instructors that you didn't take the final test(s).

Your appeal will be reviewed by a committee appointed by the director of Student Records and Registration. The committee will reach a decision within 30 days.
