Selective Withdrawal

Undergraduate students enrolled in degree programs are eligible to withdraw from a limited number of classes without Dean’s approval and at the student’s own discretion. Students may process a maximum of three such selective withdrawals during their entire undergraduate career at Mason.

The Selective Withdrawal form must be submitted by the published deadline on the academic calendar.  It can be submitted to the Office of the University Registrar in person or via fax (703) 993-4668.

The selective withdrawal period for courses is listed in the Academic Calendar. Student requests for selective withdrawals will not be processed retroactively and must be processed by the Registrar’s Office by the selective withdrawal deadline.

More detailed information about withdrawing from classes can be found in the University Catalog.

Important Note
: While a selective withdrawal has no punitive affect on GPA, it may affect a student’s academic standing since courses that have a grade of ‘W’ (withdrawal) are counted in the attempted hours that are used to determine a student’s credit level.
