Withdrawal from WKU

Students sometimes find it necessary to completely withdraw from the University for a particular term.  Dropping full semester courses during the first six days of a regular semester will not show withdrawal grades on the official transcript.  Withdrawal after the sixth day of the semester through the withdrawal deadline listed in the Academic Calendar will result in a ‘W’ grade for each course.  The official date of the withdrawal is the date the withdrawal is processed on TopNet.  After the withdrawal deadline, students must consult with each instructor for a withdrawal grade, which may be a ‘W’ or an ‘F’.  Students who cease attending class(es) without an official withdrawal will receive failing grades.

Financial Aid Recipients: Withdrawing from school completely after accepting financial aid will impact your future financial aid eligibility and may result in a hold on your account until funds are returned. Please consult with a financial aid representative to learn how the decision to withdraw from WKU will impact you. Call 270-745-2755 or email fa.questions@wku.edu.
