Dropping / Withdrawing from Courses
Students dropping a course after the 5th term day in a 16-week term (Spring, Fall or Year Term), after the 4th term day in a 9-week term (Summer or May-Extended), or after the 2nd term day in a 4-week term will receive a grade of “W” on the DIU transcript. The time limits for withdrawal from a course are as follows:
- Term days 6-30 of a 16-week term (Spring, Fall or Year Term)
- Term days 5-13 of a 9-week term (Summer or May-Extended)
- Term days 3-7 of a 4-week term (May Term)
Dropping coursework may result in ineligibility for financial aid already awarded and in the student being liable for payment of tuition covered by scholarships.
In most cases a student may not drop a course or withdraw from courses at Dallas International University after the aforesaid dates. Under extreme circumstances, the Dean of Academic Affairs may consider a petition to drop a course or withdraw after these dates.
‘Term day’ is counted per business day including the first day of the term.
