After the withdrawal deadline has passed, if you must withdraw from one or more courses in a given semester due to extenuating circumstances, you may appeal for a late withdrawal, under the Course Withdrawal policy (81). If you are requesting a late withdrawal from a certain course or courses but wish to remain registered in others, you must provide additional information, demonstrating why the extenuating circumstances affected your ability to complete courses differently. Appeals for late withdrawal are considered only after you have completed your documentation, provided detailed reasons, and included supporting documentation.
If you are successful in your appeal, a "W" grade is recorded on your transcript, which is not counted in your UFV grade point average. Appeals for late withdrawal do not include any refund of tuition.
If you are considering a late withdrawal, refer to the steps below.
