Information about Cancelling Enrollment

You are strongly encouraged to contact a member of the WSU Spokane Student Affairs staff or your advisor if you are having problems with your health, a family emergency, inadequate finances, or other unusual circumstances so that we may have an opportunity to be of assistance. Your education is important, and we would like the opportunity to help keep you on track toward completing your degree. Please call (509) 358-7530 or stop by the Student Affairs Office (SAC 130) to talk with a member of the staff.

Cancelling enrollment or reducing course load may affect the following:

  • Financial Aid - Cancelling your enrollment may affect your satisfactory academic progress and your ability to obtain financial aid in the future. Be sure to speak with Jennifer Harris at (509) 358-7905 or by email at to learn how this will affect your financial aid status.
  • Personal Health Insurance – We urge you to contact your health insurance provider to find out how your coverage is affected if you are no longer a student.
  • Optional Student Health Insurance – If you have questions, contact Health and Wellness Services Billing and Insurance at (509) 335-8216 or visit their web site.

Students who wish to cancel enrollment must fill out an online Cancellation of Enrollment Form. You will need to know your network I.D. and password. If you experience technical problems, contact the Registrar's Office at (509) 358-7530 or send an email message to If you do not know your network I.D. and password, contact us so that we may discuss other arrangements for you to complete the form. Students are not required to have a special reason to cancel enrollment. However, there are alternatives (see below) that should be considered before making this decision.

Enrollment may be cancelled at any time during the current semester, through the last day of instruction.

Cancelling enrollment during the first four weeks of the semester (or according to a prorated schedule for shorter academic terms) will result in a student’s transcript being marked “withdrew (date).” Individual courses will not be recorded.

Cancelling enrollment after the fourth week through the last day of instruction (end of the 15th week) will result in the transcript being marked “withdrew (date),” and a grade of “W” will be recorded for each course.

Students on academic probation during the semester in which they cancel enrollment must obtain permission from your major department to re-enroll at WSU Spokane in a future semester.
