Students who wish to withdraw entirely from The Graduate School must notify a Student Services Representative in writing. Per The Graduate School and the University’s withdrawal and refund policies, whether a tuition refund is possible and the amount of the refund depends on how long students were enrolled in the term. All tuition adjustments are computed as of the date on which the official withdrawal notice is received. Refunds of part or all of the tuition depend on the time the request is made, per the published refund schedule.

Withdrawals in the Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters with an "Effective Date" through the end of the 6th week of classes will result in an entry on the transcript documenting the withdrawal date. Withdrawals with an "Effective Date" after the end of the 6th week will result in the withdrawn courses, with grades of "W", being posted on the transcript along with the withdrawal date.
