Students who wish to withdraw from the institution before the end of the semester must make formal written application with the Office of Student Affairs. Those who complete withdrawal procedures will receive a grade of W in all courses if official withdrawal is within the period for dropping a course without a failing grade, they will receive a grade of WP in courses they are passing and a grade of WF in courses they are failing if official withdrawal is after the last date for dropping a course without a failing grade.
Those who fail to complete withdrawal procedures will receive a grade of F in each course for which they are registered. Refunds which may be due will depend upon the date of formal withdrawal. Applications for withdrawal will not be considered if received after final examinations begin in any semester.
If a student withdraws from classes and receives a "W" grade, the student does NOT need to apply for readmission if they are attending the very NEXT Fall or Spring semester (skipping Summer is harmless). If the student is skipping a Fall or Spring semester, they WILL need to apply for readmission (no fee) and can do so the very same day (applications for a specific term are available one year prior to that term starting).
If a student withdraws from classes and receives NO GRADES, they will need to apply for readmission (no fee) and they can do so the very same day (applications for a specific term are available one year prior to that term starting). Students withdrawing from summer term do not need to reapply if they plan to attend classes in the fall.
In the summer term, if a grade has been earned during any of the sessions, the withdrawal will be treated as a drop of a course rather than withdrawal so that the grade earned will not be voided by the withdrawal. If withdrawal has been processed in the summer term and the student wishes to register for a later summer session, the student must go to the Office of Student Affairs and request that the withdrawal be voided.
The refund policies for the University can be found in the Schedule of Classes Bulletin. Students who have been charged with academic misconduct may not be allowed to withdraw.
If you wish to withdraw you may do so by completing the withdrawal form below and faxing or mailing it to the Student Affairs Office at (931) 372-6335 or TTU Box 5027, Cookeville, TN 38505.
