Withdrawal Policy

A student may withdraw from a class after the drop/add period by completing the withdrawal process online through Web Advisor. A student cannot withdraw from a class once 66% or more of the class has been completed. The student should refer to the instructor's syllabus for the last withdrawal date for the class. The student can also contact the Registrar's Office to obtain this information.

When withdrawing, the student will receive a letter grade of W for the course. Withdrawal refunds are calculated by the Datatel computer system according to how many class meetings have occurred prior to the withdrawal. A student who withdraws from a class may get a partial refund or none at all, depending on how many class meetings have occurred prior to the withdrawal.

A student who does not follow Spalding's withdrawal policy will be charged for all classes for which he or she registered, regardless of attendance in class. If an instructor has a student on a class roster who has never attended class, the instructor will note this on the final grade sheet and assign the student a grade of F.

If receiving any type of financial assistance, a student who withdraws from all classes or reduces his or her class load is expected to report these facts to the Office of Financial Aid.
