Term Withdrawal

The official WSU Academic Calendar lists dates and deadlines for the full (15 week) semester/term. Drop and withdrawal deadlines for less than full semester sessions can be found at Academic Calendar: Session Deadlines.

Current vs. Future Term Withdrawal

Ask this question first: Has instruction for the term started? If instruction has started, you can withdraw from the term using myWSU. When instruction has not yet started, we provide campus specific checklists of steps to take.

Instruction has started: Current Term Withdrawal.

  • Example 2: It is March 5, 2024 and you want to withdraw from the term Spring 2024, which started January 8, 2024. This is a Current Term Withdrawal.

Instruction has NOT started: Future Term Withdrawal.

  • Example 1: It is August 14, 2024 and you want to withdraw from the term Fall 2024, which starts August 19, 2024. This is a Future Term Withdrawal.
