A complete session withdrawal from the university can be a difficult decision and could result in serious academic and financial consequences.
Beginning the first day of the fall and spring semesters, you are required to connect with your college/school of your major to facilitate the withdrawal process. Select your college or school below for instructions regarding the complete withdrawal process.
During the fall or spring semester, submit your withdrawal request by signing in to My ASU, click on the Registration link in your My Classes box, and select Drop/Withdrawal. Your request will be electronically routed to your college or department for review and next steps. If the semester has not yet begun, or you wish to withdraw from a summer session, sign in to My ASU, click on the Registration link in your My Classes box, and select Drop/Withdrawal and follow the steps to withdraw from your classes.
You may request a complete session drop/withdrawal by signing in to My ASU, clicking on the Registration link in your My Classes box, and selecting Drop/Withdrawal, or by submitting the Complete Session Withdrawal form to any University Registrar Services office location. Be sure to review the Graduate College’s continuous enrollment policy and discuss your withdrawal with your program advisor, if needed.
Please refer to the Tuition Refund Policy to determine if dropping/withdrawing from classes will generate a tuition refund.
Withdrawing from One or Two Classes (Course Withdrawal)
After the drop/add deadline through the course withdrawal deadline for a class, students can withdraw from the class while remaining enrolled in other classes. Students are encouraged to contact their academic advisor to discuss the impact this may have on meeting critical requirements.
Medical/Compassionate withdrawals are available for students needing to withdraw from one or more classes due to a personal mental/physical health condition or the death or serious illness of a family member/close friend. More information concerning medical/compassionate withdrawal requests can be found here.

“I” (Incomplete) Grade
If approved, a mark of "I" (Incomplete) may be given by the instructor when students are otherwise doing acceptable work but are unable to complete the class because of illness or other conditions beyond their control. Students interested in incompletes should discuss this option with their instructors and arrange for the completion of the class requirements.
