Late Course Withdraw

Under exceptional circumstances a student may be allowed to drop a course after the posted withdraw deadline. Permission to drop the course must be supported by the instructor, department chair, and ultimately the final approval comes from the Director of the Student Academic Success Center (200 Student Services Building). If at any point the appeal is not supported, the appeal is denied.

Students must follow this process:

  1. Student must fill out Registration and Drop/Add Form
  2. Student must write a letter of explanation as to why they are requesting a late withdraw.
  3. Student must get their professor’s signature, the signature of the Chair of that Department, and then lastly the PCEC Dean’s Signature. If the student has a cumulative GPA below a 2.0, they must also have their academic advisor’s signature.
  4. Once the student has those signatures, the form and letter of explanation must be turned in to the Student Academic Success Center (200 STU on ALL campus) or via email to sasc@gvsu.edu.

Add/Drop Class Form

Late withdraw requests are accepted until 5 p.m. on the last day of classes. Late withdraw requests will not be accepted starting the week of final examinations.
