The course withdrawal deadline has been moved to Monday, March 30, 2020 at 5pm.

In lieu of in-person signatures, students wishing to request a course withdrawal (and will remain full-time) must do so by contacting their faculty member and academic adviser. Once the student has received confirmation from both parties (faculty may wish to have more of a discussion with students), the student must then email undergraduateadvising@nullwfu.edu with forwarded email receipts from both their adviser and course instructor.
