Withdrawing from a Course

Students may drop a course with no notation on their transcript up until the end of the fifth week of a fall or spring semester. Between the fifth and tenth week of a fall or spring semester, students may withdraw from a course with the permission of the course instructor. Students should consult the Academic Calendar for the official Withdrawal deadline for each semester.

Students begin the process by completing the Withdraw Form. Withdrawals will appear on the transcript as a W and are not calculated into the grade point average. After the tenth week of the semester, withdrawals are not normally permitted.

Summer courses and half-semester Wharton courses have different deadlines. Consult with an advisor in the Wharton Undergraduate Division for more information.
