Students wishing to withdraw from a class after the final withdrawal date (the last date to withdraw with a "W") must complete a request for administrative withdrawal, which is only authorized by the Dean for Academic Affairs for extenuating circumstances.
Tuition is not reimbursed with an administrative withdrawal. Students are encouraged to consult the Bursar’s Office at (540) 985-3585 and the Office of Financial Aid at (540) 985-8267 to determine the financial implications of their withdrawal.
The student must submit a request for administrative withdrawal in writing to the Dean for Academic Affairs. The request must be placed on the official form available below. The form must be supplemented by additional documentation.
The request must:
- identify circumstances beyond the student's control that have occurred after the final drop date (date must be specified) and prevent successful completion of the course. If such circumstances occurred prior to the final drop date, the request must also document the extenuating circumstances leading to a failure to drop the course before the final drop date. Lack of awareness of the final drop date is not considered an extenuating circumstance.
- include documentation verifying all extenuating circumstances. Examples of acceptable documentation include a letter from a physician, lawyer, counselor, or other professional.
- indicate the last day of class attendance or online activity in a distance course.
- be accompanied by a letter/e-mail from instructors of all courses involved in the request indicating their recommendation regarding the request.
The Dean will respond within five business days of receipt of the student's letter and written recommendation from all involved instructors. A written copy of this decision will be sent to the student with copies to the registrar, course instructors and advisor. The decision of the Dean is final.
