Withdrawal

Individual withdrawal

After the 100% drop deadline, there is a period for individual withdrawal from classes. Withdrawal results in a "W" on your academic record. Individual course withdrawal will produce no tuition credit or refund. Students may withdraw from individual classes by accessing the Registration menu from their my.emich account.

Students who have a financial or other hold that prevents registration may withdraw in person at the Office of Records and Registration Service Counter, 303 Pierce Hall, or by calling the Registration office 734.487.2300. Automatic withdrawal is permitted through two-thirds of the semester/subterm. See calendars in the EMU Student Guide, for specific deadlines.

Late Withdrawal

EMU policy provides students an opportunity to withdraw after the official deadline from individual class or the entire semester/term, if they have extenuating circumstances of recent occurence, that clearly prevent them from completing the course or courses in question.

Both undergraduate and graduate students who would like to petition for a late withdrawal may do so by completing and submitting the Late Withdrawal/Tuition Appeal Request form to the Office of Records and Registration, 303 Pierce Hall, 734-487-2300. Students must provide evidence of extenuating circumstances and withdrawals are not automatic.

Complete Cancellation Of All Your Classes For The Semester

If you decide not to attend a semester for which you have registered, you must cancel your entire class schedule or be subject to financial and/or academic penalties. If you neglect to notify the Office of Records and Registration, the University has no way to know that you do not plan to attend and will continue to reserve your space in the class. Non-attendance and non-payment of bills will not result in any class being dropped.

You may cancel all classes by doing one of the following:
  • Come in person to the Office of Records and Registration Service Counter, 303 Pierce Hall; or
  • Mail or fax the cancellation form or a letter, including your student number, term, year, and main reason for withdrawal, to the Office of Records and Registration, 303 Pierce Hall, Eastern Michigan University, Ypsilanti, MI 48197. fax:734.487.6808. *Certified mail recommended
  • Call Registration @ 734.487.4111

Through the 100% deadline, a total withdrawal will result in a refund of 100% of tuition and *fees. Through the 50% deadline, total withdrawal will result in a 50% refund of tuition and *fees and "W" grades. Through the 25% deadline, total withdrawal will result in a 25% refund of tuition and *fees and "W" grades.
