If you are ready to withdraw:
Students can withdraw from the University by dropping all courses via SIS or contacting the Registrarís office through the drop deadline. After the drop deadline students MUST contact the Registrarís office to withdraw as they are unable to do so on their own. This option is available through the withdrawal deadline date. Depending on when the withdrawal occurs, a DR (Drop) or W (Withdrawal) grade will be recorded for the individual courses. A withdrawal statement is also annotated on your transcript. During this time frame students need to review the Bursarís fee schedule for refund and payment information here. Academic and financial deadlines do not coincide. Please Note: Summer and Winter terms have shorter refund periods.

AFTER THE WITHDRAWAL DEADLINE After the withdraw deadline students must submit a Special Petition for Late Withdrawal and request permission to withdraw from UWGB (drop all classes). These are reviewed by the Enrollment Review Committee (ERC) and only granted for medical, military or other extenuating circumstances. The ERC notifies students via email if their request is approved or denied. During this time frame, students are refunded 0% and remain responsible for 100% of tuition.

OTHER OPTIONS BESIDES WITHDRAWING-Students who are unable to withdrawal after the deadline has passed, or who have been denied a late withdrawal, may consider retaking the courses in a different term. Check out all those details here. In some cases, an incomplete grade may be arranged if your professor permits. See those details here.
