At times it becomes necessary for students to withdraw from a class. Withdrawal requests must be in writing, NOTIFYING THE INSTRUCTOR IS NOT SUFFICIENT. All withdrawal requests must be submitted via your ECU email (PirateMail) account or by fax, to the Office of the Registrar.
A student may withdraw from a course, or courses, without a grade as posted in the Academic Calendar. Course drops done between the drop/add period and the last day to drop term-length courses without a grade will be charged against the student's course drop allocation. In pursuit of a degree at East Carolina University, an undergraduate student may drop up to four courses (outside the schedule change period). The number of course drops is prorated on the student's credit hours (both ECU and transferred) at the time of the student's initial matriculation. See www.ecu.edu/cs-acad/registrar/Withdrawing-from-Distance-Education-Courses.cfm. After this prescribed period, withdrawals will be permitted for only the most urgent and compelling reasons. All withdrawal requests must be submitted via your ECU email account or by fax, to the Office of the Registrar.
A graduate non-doctoral student may drop a course and receive no grade according to the date given in the Graduate School calendar. A student who drops a course after the last day for graduate students to drop a class without a grade will receive a final grade of F, unless he or she has permission from the Dean of the Graduate School to drop for medical reasons or other justification. All withdrawal requests must be submitted via your ECU email account or by fax, to the Office of the Registrar.
