Withdrawing from courses
During the open registration period, you will have the opportunity to add and drop courses with no consequences. Once this week long period has closed, you will not have the ability to make changes to your enrollment.
You can withdraw from a course you have already begun to avoid receiving a failing grade if you know you are unable to complete the course. If you withdraw from the course by the end of the fourth week of class (Saturday), the course will be assigned a “W” grade on your transcript. After the fourth week of class, you will receive an "F" grade.
Withdrawing from all courses in a term will signal that you would like to take the term off. After 2 terms without registering for a course, you will be considered withdrawn from seminary. If you would like to return to the program, you will need to request reinstatement.
There are several types of withdrawals, depending on the circumstances.
- Personal withdrawal from courses occur when you contact the Online Learning Team. You may be asked to submit supporting information. Please note the results above if you withdraw.
- Administrative withdrawal is completed by the seminary. There are three reasons a student would be administratively withdrawn from courses: 1) they have not met Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements, having a grade point average too low to continue, 2) they have not fulfilled financial payment obligations, or 3) they have violated the Seminary’s standards for student conduct, which includes violation of the Westminster Online Community Values and/or Honor Code.
