Dear Academic Students,

This semester, we use the same procedure from the previous semester for Course Withdrawal to best accommodate the current situation. For those who wish to withdraw from a course, please carefully read our advice and follow the instructions shown below.

  ■Deadline for a course withdrawal: Friday, November 6th by 5:00 pm



  1. Before you make up your mind on withdrawing from a course, please make sure that you consult with your instructor to find the true status of your course progress. Your instructor may have a different view on your outcome of your final grade.
  2. No payment refunds (including time and efforts you have already invested).
  3. Your expected graduation term may be extended due to the shortage of credit hours by withdrawing from a course this term.
  4. The course level that you can register for may be affected.
  5. If you are on the school-sponsored visa, you may not reduce your workload below nine semester hours after withdrawing from one or more courses. If you also repeatedly withdraw from courses and slow down on your academic progress, you may increase the chance of not getting your student visa renewed by the Immigration Bureau. 
  6. If you are receiving a G.I. Bill benefit, you should contact Student Affairs(for more information.

Special Notes (please read carefully!):
