An administrative withdrawal (WA) exists to assist students who experience exceptional circumstances that negatively impact their ability to be academically successful. In a situation where the student never participated or attended the course, a record correction (removal of the course) may be considered instead of a WA. To avoid an automatic denial of your request, ALL necessary documents must be submitted to the CSH Office of Advising and Student Services according to the following deadlines related to the quarter’s course(s) in question:
These deadlines match the Dean of Students’ deadlines posted here: Late Withdrawal Deadlines.
Requests that are medical, personal, or mental health-related should be requested of the Dean of Students Office.
Students should note that an approved Administrative Withdrawal will be recorded as ‘WA’ on official transcripts. CSH students may only have ONE successful appeal to the CSH Office of Advising and Student Services during their academic career. The CSH cannot offer any type of tuition adjustment or credit.
When non-academic consequences apply (financial aid implications, tuition disputes, ineligibility of health insurance and housing, etc) students are directed to contact DePaul Central at 312-362-8610, OFA_AdmWdrl@depaul.edu, or SAC 101 to learn more.
