Undergraduate students may request permission to withdraw from a course or courses after the drop deadline up until the withdrawal deadline. Deadlines are posted on the Office of the Registrar’s academic calendar.
All approved withdrawals will result in a W (withdrawal) grade being posted to the transcript. This grade will not factor into the GPA. Students should consult with their academic advisor regarding the implications of withdrawing from a course.
Policies and procedures for withdrawing from a course, as well as a link to the online form, can be found at: https://www.registrar.northwestern.edu/registration-graduation/registration/withdrawal.html.
