The "withdrew" notation will appear on the transcripts of students who withdraw from all of their classes after the third week of a full term (or after the second week of a half term), including those students in their first term at the University of Michigan.
Students who have early registered for a term or half-term but who subsequently decide not to return to the University should notify:
The Office of the Registrar
1210 LSA Building
Ann Arbor, MI 48104-1520
Include name, UMID number, term(s) to disenroll, signature.
To avoid a disenrollment fee, notification of intention to disenroll must be received before the first day of classes.
Students who wish to withdraw once classes have begun should contact the Academic Advising Center, 1255 Angell Hall, 734.764.0332. Students who withdraw within the first three weeks of the term (two weeks for a half-term) are assessed a disenrollment fee plus a registration fee, but the registration will not appear on the student's record. Consult the Registrar's Office website for fee amounts.
Students who withdraw between the fourth and sixth week of a full term or in the third week of a half-term are assessed 50% tuition and the registration appears on the transcript with a "withdrew" notation. These dates are posted for each term on the following website: ro.umich.edu. Full tuition is assessed after these dates.
After the sixth week of classes in a full term (third week in a half-term), students wishing to withdraw from the College must make an appointment with a member of the Academic Standards Board. After the late drop deadline (ninth week in a full term or four and a half in a half term), students who withdraw from the term will have a hold placed on their records. These students will be out of registration at least one full term (14 weeks) and must obtain permission from the Academic Standards Board to continue in the College.
