If you wish to withdraw from a program, you should first consult with your faculty adviser.

If a student decides to withdraw from a program, they must complete the Withdraw from a Program form and upload it to Student Enrollment and Account Management (SEAM). Depending on the date of the withdraw (see withdraw/audit calendar), the student may be responsible for all coursework, tuition, and fees for the current semester, if enrolled in courses.

Submitting the Withdraw from a Program Form to SEAM will trigger the following sequence:

  • Student is Withdrawn: The student will be withdrawn from the program.
  • Current Courses: If the student wishes to withdraw from their current courses, they must indicate that on the Withdraw from a Program Form and it must be within the permitted time schedule (please see the withdraw/audit calendar). In cases where a student withdraws from a program after the deadline to receive a WD notation on their transcript, they will not be withdrawn from their current coursework. Rather, they will receive the final grade earned for those courses in which they were enrolled as of the date of withdraw from the School of Education.
  • Refund: A refund will be processed, if applicable.
  • Future Courses: The student’s registration for the next semester will be canceled, if applicable.

A student who formally withdraws from a program but who subsequently wishes to be reinstated must reapply using the regular application process.

Please note that students who wish to switch programs rather than withdraw from the University entirely should refer to the School of Education’s policy on Changing Programs.
