How do I withdraw from a Summer Session class/WORKSHOP?

All refunds, if any, will be based upon the last day of participation in each class.
Students attending on-campus classes must withdraw using blue Withdrawal Cards. These cards must be signed by the professor and the last date of attendance must be noted.

Graduate students who do poorly in the summer may be placed on academic probation, suspension or dismissal. Students who are on probation at the end of the Spring Semester may have their academic probation/warning removed if they do well during the summer. Please refer to the Academic Standing policies in the catalog for undergraduate students or graduate students.
