Graduate Drop and Withdrawal Policy

Robert Morris University works hard to deal with changes that impact a student's enrollment. Still, there are some things that only students can control. Here are some things to keep in mind.
  • Please be advised that you are financially responsible for all of the classes for which you register. You may check online at any time to review your current class schedule. You should do this before and after you register for classes and before and after any add/ drop/ withdrawals to ensure you are enrolled in the correct classes.
  • Students may add or drop classes through the end of the add/drop period. If you need to drop or withdraw from a class, you should contact your academic advisor or department head to determine the impact on your degree progress.
  • Once registered for classes, should you decide not to attend, you must cancel your registration through the Office of Academic Services at 412-397-6230 prior to the end of the add/drop period. Students enrolled in fully online programs should contact the Office of Online Student Services at 412-397-6306 or via email to: onlinestudentservices@rmu.edu.
  • Students who are registered for the class and subsequently do not attend remain financially responsible for their registration unless written notification of their decision is received prior to the end of the add/drop period.
  • Course withdrawals are processed once the add/drop period has ended using the deadlines published in the Academic Calendar.
  • Course withdrawals result in a final grade of "W" for the class and are so recorded on your official academic transcript.
NOTE: Beginning Fall 2014, the withdrawal period for 15-week classes has been shortened from 12 weeks to 10 weeks. The withdrawal period for 8-week courses has also been shortened from 6 weeks to 5 weeks. These dates are correctly reflected in the academic calendars for Fall 2014 shown both online at www.rmu.edu/Academics/AcademicCalendar and in the Fall 2014 Schedule of Classes. Please ensure you consider the new withdrawal periods when deciding whether to withdraw from classes.
