Graduate Catalog

Withdrawal from Lewis & Clark

Students who find it necessary to withdraw from Lewis & Clark must initiate a formal withdrawal by completing the online withdrawal form found on the graduate registrar’s web page. Withdrawing from the college may affect tuition charges and financial aid eligibility. Please refer to Billing and Payment Standards and Financial Assistance sections of the catalog.

Withdrawal from a Course

Students may withdraw from a course after the drop deadline and through 75% of the course*. In this case, a grade notation of “W” (withdrawn) is recorded for that course. Grades of “W” are not calculated into the grade point average. Withdrawals are not permitted after 75% of the course. Students who stop attending a course after 75% will not be eligible for a “W” and will receive a failing or “NC” (no credit) grade.  

To withdraw from a course, students must complete the late add/withdrawal form prior to the deadline. Ceasing to attend a course does not constitute a withdrawal. The official date of withdrawal is the day the form has received all necessary approvals and has been received by the graduate registrar’s office.

Students should refer to the refund schedule for more information regarding course tuition and fee refunds.

*The percentage of the course completed is calculated based on the period between the first course meeting and the last course meeting (not the number of course meetings attended).
