Drop and Withdrawal

Students receiving financial aid should contact the Financial Aid office before dropping or withdrawing to fully understand the impact on their current and future aid. You can officially drop or withdraw from a course by accessing the GullNet.

Students who officially drop from a course within the stated drop period will not have the course posted on unofficial or official transcripts. Dropped courses do not count as attempted credit. After the drop period has ended, students may officially withdraw from a course up to the published timeframe. Information regarding this period can be obtained in the Registrar's Office. The academic consequences from this action include receiving the grade of "W" for the course, which will appear on unofficial and official transcripts. A grade of "W" will not impact your GPA and does not count as completed credit toward your degree.

Students are responsible for dropping or withdrawing themselves. Failure to drop or withdraw in the required manner may have adverse impacts on financial aid and/or the academic grade for the course(s).

Stopping payment on checks for registration fees or not paying at registration does not constitute a drop or withdrawal nor relieve you of your financial obligation to SU. Never attending or ceasing to attend classes does not constitute a drop or withdrawal.

If you have any additional questions concerning withdrawing or dropping a course(s), please contact the Financial Aid Office.
