Students who need to drop or withdraw from a course may do so online within published deadlines found on the student schedule or in Search for Sections in myGSU.
For students who receive financial aid (scholarships, grants, loans), please check with the Office of Financial Aid before dropping a course to determine if dropping a course will affect your financial aid eligibility. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
GSU has three different types of class drops: class drop, class withdraw, late withdraw request. You may click on the + sign to learn more information about each type of class drop.
For Emergency/Medical Leaves, that process is overseen by the Dean of Students. More information is available at www.govst.edu/emergencyleave
Please note that the last day to file a late withdrawal is the last day of the semester/term in which the course(s) take place. Incomplete requests will not be considered.
Students who need to drop a class may do so through myGSU.
For full-semester classes, the deadline to drop a class is within the first two weeks of the semester/term. The course does not appear on the transcript and tuition is credited.
If you simply stop attending, you are not dropped. It is your responsibility to drop any class you do not intend to take or complete within the published deadlines.
Students in the GENST.UNDG program must contact your academic advisor to drop a class.
Class Withdraw (Weeks 3-10)
Students who need to withdraw from a class may do so through myGSU.
For full-semester classes, the deadline to withdraw from a class is from the third week through the tenth week. A "W" grade will be assigned and tuition and fees will apply.
If you simply stop attending, you are not withdrawn. It is your responsibility to withdraw from any class you do not intend to take or complete within the published deadlines.
Students in the GENST.UNDG program must contact your academic advisor to withdraw from a class.
