Students seeking to withdraw from all of the courses they are enrolled in for a specific semester - even if they are enrolled in only one class - must follow the directions listed in the chart below. The Registrar sets and publishes refund dates each term. It is not possible to withdraw from all courses in a semester using the “drop” feature on the Backpack/Registration page of Wolverine Access. Before requesting a withdrawal, students should first check that they do not have any account holds or open academic integrity investigations that may prevent the withdrawal.

A drop refers to when students remove themselves from one or more classes but remain enrolled in at least one course that semester. A term or semester withdrawal is when students remove themselves from all classes in a semester. For more on drops, please see the Add/Drop policy page.
You must contact the Office of the Registrar and request a "registration appointment" so that you can register for courses using Wolverine Access. If you withdrew near the end of the semester, you may also have a registration hold placed on your account - if so, you need to meet with a Student Success advisor to discuss future plans before the hold can be lifted.
Retroactive withdrawals can only be granted in extraordinary circumstances where you did not complete any of your semester courses and significant non-academic circumstances prevented you from requesting a withdrawal before the deadline. Retroactive withdrawal petitions must be submitted within calendar year of the semester.
You must first meet with a Student Success advisor before submitting a petition. In that meeting, the advisor will discuss the petition criteria and provide directions on how to submit the request. Petitions are reviewed by a committee from the Academic Standards Board and the final decision will be communicated to you via email.
