Registration: Withdrawal from University Fall and Spring Semesters (Faculty and Staff Instructions)

Last updated

Weeks One through Ten

Beginning with the first day of the semester through the end of the tenth week, any undergraduate degree-seeking student will be required to contact an advisor in the Advising, Retention, and Career Center, 2100 Vicki Lord Larson Hall, 715-836-3487 / arcc@uwec.edu. The advisor will speak with the student about the possible consequences that may result from a withdrawal, and make the student aware that there may be other options to consider before making a final decision. The advisor will also refer the student to relevant campus support services.

If the student’s decision is to process the withdrawal, the advisor will give the student access to an electronic withdrawal form that has been designed to gather better data for strengthening retention efforts.

Graduate, Post Baccalaureate, and Special (not degree-seeking) students will have direct access to a withdrawal form. The form provides reminders to graduate and post baccalaureate students to speak with their program advisor before submission of the withdrawal, as well as information on financial deadlines.
