A student who withdraws on or up to the 12th class day or the 4th day of summer school will have no record of coursework on the transcript. A student who withdraws after the 12th class day or 4th day of summer school and before the last day to drop without penalty will receive a grade of "W". After the last date to withdraw without penalty, the grade of "WF" is assigned, unless the student withdraws for medical reasons and a "W" is recommended by the instructor.
A student whose medical or psychological health condition precludes class attendance may be withdrawn from Texas Woman's University effective the day and under the conditions specified at the time of the withdrawal. A student who requests a medical withdrawal must submit written documentation from their treating physician along with an official TWU Withdrawal Form to the Associate Vice President for Student Life. Please note that a medical withdrawal does not qualify a student for a refund.
In summary, the University's expectation is that students who leave the University for nonacademic reasons will attempt to withdraw in a timely manner, that is, during the semester in which they are enrolled or during the next semester or term if there are compelling non-academic reasons.
Please note that financial aid recipients should first contact the Financial Aid Office before dropping classes, or withdrawing from the university, to determine how a change will affect financial aid. Students who drop classes or withdraw from university may be required to repay part or all of the financial aid funds received during the semester. Also, financial aid eligibility for future semesters may be affected.
