Withdrawal Due to Extenuating Circumstances
Sometimes difficult things happen that make it impossible to complete your studies as planned. If this occurs before the deadline to withdraw, simply withdraw from your courses and register again when you are able. If this occurs after the deadline to withdraw, it may be possible to withdraw and receive a 'W' on your transcript rather than a failing grade. Every student's situation is different and is decided on a case by case basis. For more information, see the Office of the Registrar. You may also wish to meet with a counsellor to discuss your options.
