I'm thinking of withdrawing from the University. Where do I start?
Need some advice? Need someone to help you identify alternatives? If you are considering withdrawing from the University, a good first point-of-contact is your academic advisor. In addition, the Dean of Students Office assists students experiencing circumstances beyond their control requiring their withdrawal from classes for the current term. Students considering withdrawing from courses for extenuating reasons can contact the Student Assistance and Support Services office at 704-687-0289.
What are my options for a withdrawal with extenuating circumstances (WE)?
Extenuating Circumstances Withdrawal (must get prior approval through a request process): a partial (single course withdrawal) or full withdrawal (all classes) for students who are unable to complete their coursework for the semester due to an unforeseen circumstance. Review which circumstances qualify for a WE.
Students are responsible for adhering to deadlines regarding the Withdrawal with Extenuating Circumstances process. No exceptions will be made!
Once you are ready to begin the process for a Withdrawal with Extenuating Circumstances, please start by completing one of the following request forms:
