Requests to withdraw after the tenth week require the signature of the instructor, advisor and the student's dean.

Additionally, they are considered only in extraordinary situations which are beyond the student's control. Poor performance in a course is not considered grounds for a late withdrawal. (According to University policy the student must be passing the course on the date of withdrawal to qualify for the grade of W. If the student is failing, the grade recorded on the date of the withdrawal will be F. - Refer to the Indiana University Academic Handbook, 2001, p. 170).

If approval is granted by the instructor, advisor, and the student's dean; take the signed form(s) to the Office of the Registrar (AI 148) for processing.

No withdrawal forms will be processed in the Office of the Registrar after the last day of classes. Requests for a withdrawal after the last day of classes must follow the grade appeal process.
