What is a withdrawal and how can I do this?

Withdrawal from The University is done after a student has completed registration for a semester or summer session, and then decides not to attend any classes that semester or session.

The registration system will not permit you to withdraw by yourself. You must do this in the CNS Dean’s Office. If it is not possible to come to the office, please call (512) 471-4536. During the first four weeks of class there is a pro-rated refund for withdrawing from school. A full refund, less $15.00, is ONLY given if a student withdraws prior to the first day of class. Failure to properly withdraw results in failing grades in all semester coursework. Leaving UT without a formal withdrawal is the same as failing all classes and has the same consequences.

After the final deadline, students may not drop or withdraw unless there are serious non-academic circumstances, which occurred after the Q deadline date. Appeals will only be considered for documented, non-academic reasons. Contact the CNS Dean’s Office, WCH 1.106,  (512) 471-4536 for non-academic issues. You must include your EID in all communication, by phone, voicemail, or email, for our office to assist you.
