Drop (W) / Official Withdrawal / Unofficial Withdrawal (ED)

If a student withdraws officially from a course after the first three weeks of a full term (first two weeks of a half-term), the course is recorded on the transcript with a W notation; neither credits toward a degree program nor honor points are earned. The W notation is posted regardless of a student's reasons for requesting the official withdrawal. If a student unofficially withdraws from a course (i.e., stops attending the course but does not obtain permission for an official withdrawal), the notation ED (Unofficial Withdrawal) is posted on the transcript. An ED is computed into the term and cumulative grade point averages as an E if the course was elected for a regular letter grade; neither credit toward a degree program nor honor points are earned.
