Cancellation / Withdrawal

Cancellation of Early Registration

Cancellation of early registration prior to the beginning of the semester is the student's responsibility. Students may officially cancel their registration before the first day of the semester by completing the Cancellation/Withdrawal Form. The date of the official cancellation will be the date the student's form is received by the Office of the Registrar. Students will receive a copy of the completed cancellation form by email once the form is submitted to the Office of the Registrar.

Official Withdrawal

Beginning the first day of class, students withdrawing from all coursework must complete a Cancellation/Withdrawal Form. The date of the official withdrawal will be the date the student's form is received by the Office of the Registrar. Students will receive a copy of the completed withdrawal from by email once the form is submitted to the Office of the Registrar.

The last day a student may withdraw registration with grades is the Friday five weeks preceding the last class day of the term. (See also Summer Sessions deadlines). After that time a student should continue classes to completion. An exception to this rule is that a student may have his or her registration canceled without grades for cause (major mental or physical illness or other significant incapacity) providing both the student’s Academic Dean and the Associate Vice President for Student Services agree to this course of action. Please note: Anytime a student withdraws after the first 10 days of the semester, a “W” indicating the withdrawal will appear on the student’s transcript. All courses in which the student was enrolled on the first day of the term will be considered when assessing satisfactory progress for financial aid purposes.

A student who leaves the University without obtaining an official withdrawal is given an ‘‘F’’ in all courses.

Please contact UND Student Account Services before canceling your registration, they will inform you of the financial impacts of the cancellation.

Course Withdrawal

Course withdrawal is the process used to withdraw from (drop) one or more courses (but not all courses) for which a student is registered for the semester.
