Voluntary Withdrawal

Overview

Enrolled students or students still eligible to be enrolled may choose to leave the institution for various reasons. Before making a final decision to withdraw, students should discuss their options with their adviser(s), the department, and the Graduate School. Students who withdraw from the Graduate School lose their degree eligiblity and may not resume an enrolled status. 

Voluntary Withdrawal Considerations

Students considering a voluntary withdrawal should not make such a decision without careful consideration.  Specifically, students contemplating a voluntary withdrawal should:

  • Contact their adviser(s) and DGS to discuss the reasons for a voluntary withdrawal;
  • If eligible, consider a leave of absence, which may allow a student to return to an enrolled status within the same program;
  • Complete the checkout process via TigerHub;
  • Submit a voluntary withdrawal request via the online status system accessed through TigerHub
