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.
Before submitting your appeal
Before submitting an appeal for late withdrawal, ensure you have done the following:
Preparing your appeal
To complete your appeal, do the following:
Submitting your appeal
Submit all appeal documents via email (from a UFV email account) to firstname.lastname@example.org, or in-person to the Office of the Registrar. Documents can also be mailed to the Office of the Registrar at the address in the footer below.
Note: Appeals must be submitted no later than four months after the end of the semester. If extenuating circumstances prevented you from requesting the late withdrawal within four months, a rationale for considering the request after the deadline is required. Unawareness of the ability to appeal for a late withdrawal does not qualify as a rationale.
Receiving a response
If your appeal for late withdrawal is accepted, it is sent to the Appeals Committee for review. You should expect to receive a response within approximately 4 to 6 weeks of your request. The response will be emailed to your UFV student email account.
The Appeals Committee carefully considers each appeal on its own merit, and as stated in the Course Withdrawal policy (81) their decision is final.
If you have any questions regarding the above information, or about the Course Withdrawal policy (81), you may contact the appeals assistant at email@example.com.
