Late Withdrawal

An administrative late withdrawal exists to assist students who experience unique circumstances that negatively impact their ability to be academically successful. This withdrawal request option is available to CSH students when all other academic options with faculty have been exhausted.

To avoid an automatic denial of your request, ALL necessary documents must be submitted to the Office of Advising and Student Services according to the following deadlines related to the quarter’s course(s) in question:

  • Autumn Quarter: Last day of the last final exam of the subsequent winter quarter.
  • Winter Quarter: Last day of the last final exam of the subsequent spring quarter.
  • Spring Quarter: The end of the second week of the subsequent autumn quarter.
  • Summer Terms: Last day of the last final exam of the subsequent autumn quarter.

These deadlines match the Dean of Students’ deadlines posted here: Late Withdrawal Deadlines.

Requests that are medical, personal, or psychological in nature should be requested of the Dean of Students Office.

Students should note that an approved Late Withdrawal will be recorded as ‘WA’ on official transcripts. CSH students may only have ONE successful appeal to the Office of Advising and Student Services during their academic career. When non-academic consequences apply (financial aid implications, ineligibility of health insurance and housing, etc.) students directed to contact DePaul Central at 312-362-8610 or SAC 101 to learn more.
