The University recognizes that numerous circumstances may arise which will necessitate a
student ceasing class attendance prior to the end of the semester. "Official withdrawal" involves
the student withdrawing from all classes for which he/she is registered as well as notifying
appropriate administrative officials of his/her decision to leave the campus. If a student
leaves without processing a withdrawal, the absences from class and from the campus will be
justification for the grade of F to be assigned for the course(s) in which the student is enrolled.
Procedures. The student is not officially withdrawn until he/she has completed the withdrawal
procedures. For undergraduate students, official withdrawal from enrollment must be initiated in
the Office of Registration and Records, Parsons Hall, Room 009, or by calling (812) 237-2020.
Students seeking to withdraw are interviewed by a professional staff person and complete a
withdrawal interview form and an authorization form. Questions concerning withdrawal from
enrollment should be directed to the Office of Registration and Records.
If you are a graduate student and you wish to withdraw from the University, you must contact
the School of Graduate Studies. The School of Graduate Studies is located in Tirey Hall, Room 183,
or you can reach their office by phoning (812) 237-3005.
Grade Determination. Grade determination for students who officially withdraw from the University
during a fall or spring semester is established as follows. From the first through the tenth week of
classes, no grades are assigned for processed withdrawals. Beyond the tenth week, if the work is
failing at the time of withdrawal, the grade "WF" will be given; if the student is doing passing
work, the grade of "WP" will be given. "WF" grades will be included in calculation of the grade
point average. A grade of "WP" and "WF" may be assigned only when students have officially
withdrawn from enrollment after the tenth week of the term.
Withdrawal Following Priority Scheduling. Students who participate in registration must initiate
an official withdrawal in accord with the procedures described above if they elect not to attend
if they elect not to attend any classes during the semester for which registration was accomplished.
An official withdrawal must be completed for the semester for which the student has priority scheduled
even if he/she has withdrawn from the previous semester.
Refund of Fees for Official Withdrawal. Please see the Schedule of Classes, published on-line
each semester and summer session, for details regarding grading, refund provisions, and calendar
Official Withdrawal from Summer Enrollment. Students who participate in registration must
