Complete Withdrawal from Term

Students may submit a complete withdrawal from fall or spring term after the second week of classes. 

Use the submission button below to completely withdraw from all of your classes during week three through the last day of classes (NOT FINALS) of a fall or spring semester. See the Dates and Deadlines Calendar for other sessions.

Do not use the submission button below to drop all of your classes before the semester begins or during weeks 1-2 of a fall or spring semester. You may log into UAccess and drop your classes.

Complete Withdrawal Form

Allow 48 hours for processing. DO NOT submit duplicate requests! 

*Completely withdrawing from the term can have many ramifications. The Dean of Students Office has compiled a list of  Things to Consider When Performing a Complete Withdrawal.

 

Withdrawn Class Information

  • Withdrawn classes appear on your transcript. Classes receive a grade of WC.
  • Withdrawn classes do not calculate into your GPA.
  • Withdrawn classes do not count towards the 18 unit cap on W grades.
  • You may return in the next major semester without having to re-apply as long as your college does not disqualify you because you are not in good standing.
  • You will be eligible for priority registration.
  • If you are withdrawing for medical reasons, you may submit documentation for a medical withdrawal and consideration for a full or partial refund. First, submit the online Complete Withdrawal by using the submission button at the top of this page, and then follow the directions for submitting medical documentation. Your medical documentation will be reviewed by Campus Health and if approved, your record will be updated to reflect the approved refund percentage.
  • If the student is incapacitated contact the Office of the Registrar for assistance in the process, Administration Building, Main Floor, 520-621-3113, reghelp@arizona.edu.

 

Dropped Class Information

  • Dropped classes do not appear on your transcript. 
  • If you are in your first semester and you drop all of your classes prior to the first withdrawal deadline, you will not be eligible to register for the next semester and will need to apply for admission. 
  • If you drop all classes prior to the refund deadline, you will be eligible for a refund. 
  • If you are a continuing student, you may qualify for Back2UA which will allow you to maintain your eligibility to return without readmission. See the General Catalog for more information. 
  • If you are withdrawing for medical reasons during weeks 1-2, you may submit documentation for consideration of a medical withdrawal and a full or partial refund. Drop your classes in UAccess and then follow the Academic Absences & Withdrawals directions to submit medical documentation. Your medical documentation will be reviewed by Campus Health and if approved, your record will be updated to indicate a complete withdrawal. 
  • If the student is incapacitated contact the Office of the Registrar for assistance in the process, Administration Building, Main Floor, 520-621-3113, reghelp@arizona.edu
