Drop/Withdraw From a Course

Students are not withdrawn from school for non-attendance.
Withdrawal Process – Official and Un-Official
Go to My Hawkeye > My WebAdvisor > WebAdvisor for Students > Registration to withdraw from a course until one full week prior to the end of the term for a full semester course (prorated for courses less than full term). You are not permitted to withdraw after this time.
Your withdrawal request date is the day you withdraw on My Hawkeye > My WebAdvisor.
You will receive a grade of W if you withdraw from a course within the drop/withdraw period. The last date of attendance will be recorded as the day you withdraw on My Hawkeye > My WebAdvisor.
If you do not withdraw by the drop/withdraw date for your class and you stop attending, you will receive a grade of F. Your last date of attendance will be recorded by your instructor.
If you fail to follow the withdrawal process without good cause, you will not be considered officially withdrawn.
You are still considered enrolled, even if you stop attending classes. You must officially withdraw from your course through My Hawkeye > My WebAdvisor.
If you fail to officially withdraw, you forfeit your right to a refund and will receive a final grade in each course in which you enrolled.
- After you complete the necessary steps on My Hawkeye > My WebAdvisor to drop/withdraw from a course, it is recommended you print the registration results as your documentation and proof of dropping a course(s).
