Withdrawing from Courses
Withdrawing from Individual Courses
After the drop/add deadline, the only option to adjust your schedule is to withdraw from a course. During the Course Withdrawal Period, you can withdraw from a course with no penalty. However, before withdrawing from a class you are encouraged to discuss the withdrawal with your instructor and/or academic advisor, and with the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid to check the implications, if any, for any scholarships, loans, or financial aid you may have. A W will appear on your record for the course. Withdrawal must be done online by the deadline day for the term. Consult the Office of the Registrar Calendar to know the exact deadline for your course. No refund is made for withdrawal from a single course.
To do your course withdrawal, use MyBSU (my.bsu.edu): Self Service Banner. Choose "Course add/drop/withdrawal" in the Registration menu. Select "Web Withdrawal" from the action menu beside your course, and then select "Submit Changes" to complete the procedure. Consult the Student Self-Service Banner Tutorials for complete detail.
If there are verifiable extenuating circumstances that justify late withdrawal (after the Course Withdraw Period has ended), see your academic advisor.
Withdrawing from All Classes
Should you need to withdraw from all classes after the semester begins, you must report immediately to the Office of the Assistant to the Vice President/Ombudsperson, Student Affairs (Administration Building 238) and complete the procedure. If a refund is warranted, the amount will be determined by the date of withdrawal, which is the date you complete the withdrawal procedure.
You must continue to attend classes until you have completed withdrawal. If you stop going to class before that time, you are at high risk to receive an F in the course or courses from which you are withdrawing. Each of your instructors will be notified and asked to report your last day of attendance and your grade.
For more information about withdrawal from all classes, call the Office of the Assistant to the Vice President/Ombudsperson, Student Affairs, 765-285-1545. Office staff can discuss your options with you.
