Withdrawal Deadlines

Withdrawal by Instructor for Non-Attendance

At the discretion of individual departments and/or instructors, students who have not attended through the first four days of the semester (or its equivalent) of a class and who have failed to contact the instructor may be dropped from the class roster. This must be submitted to the Registrar's Office by Tuesday of the second week of the semester. Since this is an optional action on the part of departments, students who wish to drop a class should do so themselves.

Drop/Withdrawal Procedure

Students wishing to drop a course should contact the Student Service Center, 2201 C.B. Hedgcock, 906-227-1221, for processing. No instructor signatures are required. See Add/Drop Procedures.

Procedure for Complete Withdrawal from University

Students who decide to leave Northern Michigan University without finishing the semester for which they are currently enrolled must complete a Notice of Withdrawal Form at the Dean of Students Office, 2001 C. B. Hedgcock. Students can withdraw by telephone, mail or fax provided that the student states their reason for withdrawing, includes their NMU IN number and a photocopy of a valid form of identification (NMU student i.d. card or driver's license) and signs a letter requesting the withdrawal. Students may also fax withdrawal requests to the Dean of Student's Office at 906-227-1714. Following the proper withdrawal procedures ensures (1) that the maximum allowable proportion of fees due to the student will be refunded, (2) that the appropriate grades will be recorded on the student's transcript, and (3) that the individual's records will be properly maintained in the event of future enrollment at Northern Michigan University or transfer to another university or college. Students who withdraw from the university should also contact the Financial Aid Office to determine the impact on financial aid for the semester. Financial Aid Return Policy

Students who withdraw from the university after 5 p.m. of the tenth week of classes will receive a final grade based on the requirements of the course and the quality and amount of work completed in the course. In extreme cases exceptions to this policy may be made with the written approval of the Dean of Students Office. For more information about withdrawing from the university, contact the Dean of Students Office, 2201 C.B. Hedgcock,  906-227-1700, e-mail dso@nmu.edu.
