Current Term Withdrawal

Do you have a housing contract?

Go to WSU Housing. Chose myHousing Contract and click on the cancel button to cancel your housing contract.

Are you enrolled in classes?

No, not enrolled in classes at this time.

If you are NOT enrolled in classes, no action is needed.

Yes, I'm enrolled in classes, but the term has not started yet.

If you enrolled in classes for a future term, you can drop your classes in myWSU. Go to My Student Center, select Enroll, then term, Choose the DROP tab and select the box next to each class. Select Drop Selected Classes, then Finish Dropping. No further action is required at the Registrar's Office. If you have a housing contract or financial aid, contact those offices.

Yes, I'm enrolled in classes, and the term has already started.

Go to "Still want to withdraw from the current term?" below. Withdrawing from your classes for the current term will remove all your WSU courses at all campuses. This includes classes you are taking on other WSU campuses and through WSU Online (Global Campus). To start this process, complete this form to request for the Registrar's Office to remove you.

Alternatives to Withdrawing from the current term

If you are not certain about withdrawing from all the classes you are attending, here are some alternatives you may wish to consider:


If the semester is close to completion and you believe  that a little extra time to complete your courses or to make up tests would be of help, consider talking to one or more of your instructors about the possibility of receiving incompletes.

Dropping or Withdrawing from Individual Classes

You may drop courses without record up to the end of the 4th week of the semester in which the courses are offered. After the 4th week, you can withdraw from individual courses through the end of the 13th week (limits do apply - see  Rule 68). Withdrawals result in a  grade of “W” appearing on the transcript which does not affect the grade point average. Important: Reducing your course load may affect financial aid, etc. NOTE: Summer Session deadlines are prorated and based on the length of the course. Use myWSU to DROP individual classes.

Tuition Adjustment Policy

Students withdrawing from classes (sometimes referred to as "withdrawal from the university" or "cancellation of enrollment") may be entitled to an adjustment of tuition based on the tuition adjustments schedule. The policy for tuition adjustments is available at the following link  - Tuition Adjustment Policy. Note that the tuition adjustment policy may change as a result of revisions to governmental regulations.
