Withdrawal policy

 For graduate and undergraduate students

See the drop/withdrawal dates each semester.


 For undergraduate students only

Students may drop a course through the second week (14th calendar day) of a semester or proportionally equivalent dates during summer session, intersession, and other course terms. No record of the course will appear on the student’s transcript. For purposes of this policy, the course term for a course that meets during a semester but begins after the beginning of a semester and/or ends before the end of a semester begins when its class meetings begin and ends when its class meetings end.

After the 14-day period, and subject to the limitations below, students may withdraw from a course through the seventh week (49th calendar day) of a semester or proportionally equivalent dates during summer session, intersession, and other course terms. A course withdrawal will be indicated on the student’s official academic record by a grade of “WD.”

Withdrawing from courses

These points apply to undergraduate students only.

  1. Undergraduate students may not withdraw from the same course more than twice. If a student attempts to withdraw from a course after having withdrawn from it twice before, he or she will continue to be enrolled in the course and will receive a grade at the end of the semester.
  2. Full-time undergraduate students who need to withdraw from all courses for extraordinary non-academic reasons (e.g., medical treatment or convalescence, military service) must obtain the permission of the dean of their college. For purposes of this paragraph,
    1. Students are considered full-time if they were enrolled as full-time students at the beginning of the term; and
    2. Courses for which the student has completed all requirements are excluded.
  3. Undergraduate students who withdraw from two courses either before they have earned 32 credits, or after they have earned 32 credits but before they have earned 64 credits, are not permitted to register for additional courses until they have consulted with their academic adviser. The purpose of this consultation is to discuss the reasons for the course withdrawals and to promote satisfactory academic progress by helping students develop strategies to complete their courses successfully.
  4. Except as otherwise provided below, undergraduate students may not withdraw from more than four courses before they have earned 64 credits. Students who attempt to withdraw from more than four courses will continue to be enrolled in those courses and will receive grades at the end of the semester.
  5. Undergraduate students who need to withdraw from all courses for extraordinary, non-academic reasons (e.g. medical treatment or convalescence, military service) may, after consulting with their adviser, submit a written petition to the dean of their college requesting that these courses not be counted toward the four-course withdrawal limit. The dean may grant this permission if, in the dean’s judgment, it is consistent with the best academic interests of the student and the best interests of the University.
  6. Undergraduate students who have reached the four-course withdrawal limit as noted above may, after consultation with their adviser, submit a written petition to the dean of their college seeking permission to withdraw from one or more additional courses. The dean may grant this permission if the dean finds that the withdrawal is necessitated by circumstances beyond the student’s control and is consistent with the best academic interests of the student and the best interests of the University.
  7. Withdrawing from a course shall not reduce or prevent a penalty accruing to a student for misconduct as defined in the Student Code of Conduct.
  8. Degree-granting colleges may supplement this policy with more stringent requirements.

A student choosing to audit a course must elect to do so at the time of registration.  The student pays the enrollment fee and may be expected to complete all the work prescribed for students taking the course for credit, except that of taking the examination.  Any faculty member may initiate withdrawal for a student not meeting these expectations.

Contact the Office of the University Registrar with questions. (Note: all email communication must come from your University of Akron email account)

Credit/Noncredit Option (undergraduate and postbaccalaureate only)

A student who takes a course on a "credit" or "Noncredit" (CR/NCR) basis, and who earns a grade equivalent of "A" through "C-," shall receive credit ("CR") for the course and have the grade, "CR," placed on the permanent record; a grade equivalent of "D+" through "F" will be recorded with the noncredit grade, "NC."

For the baccalaureate degree, no more than 16 credits of non-language courses and no more than 20 credits in total (including language courses) are permitted to be taken on a CR/NC basis.  For the associate degree, no more than 8 credits of non-language courses and no more than 10 credits in total, including language courses, is permitted. 

A student is eligible for the CR/NC option if the student has:

  • Completed 50% of the number of credits required for a degree;
  • A GPA of at least 2.30; and
  • The consent of an advisor.

The CR/NC option is available only at the time of registration for the course.  After the first week of the term or first two days of a summer session, the status cannot be changed.  The registrar will notify the instructor of those students utilizing the CR/NC option by means of the final class list.

Courses that can be taken CR/NC basis:

  • One free elective (not in major field) course per term;
  • Any first-and/or second-year foreign language course at any time, regardless of grade-point average.

Courses that cannot be taken CR/NC:

  • Any General Education courses
  • Course required by colleges and departments of all undergraduate majors

Courses for which "CR" is awarded will be counted as hours complete only; courses for which "NC" is awarded shall not be counted as hours attempted; in neither case shall "CR" or "NC" be considered in calculating grade-point average, but in both instances the course shall be entered on the student's official academic record.

A student may repeat a course for credit (CR), or a grade (A-F) after receiving a grade of "NC."

A college may designate in the printed schedule on an annual basis a course as not available to be taken on a "CR/NC" basis.

A student taking a course "CR/NC" basis is expected to meet the full requirements for the course as required by the instructor. 

Any course may be repeated twice by an undergraduate student subject to the following conditions:

  • To secure a grade (“A-F”) a student may repeat a course in which the previously received grade was a “C-,” “D+,” “D,” “D-,” or “F,” “CR,” “NC,” or “AUD.” Registrations under the “CR/NC” option are subject to the restrictions in the “CR/NC” policy
  • To secure a “CR,” a student may repeat a course in which the previously received grade was a “NC.” Registrations under the “CR/NC” option are subject to the restrictions in the “CR/NC” policy
  • To secure a grade (“A-F”), “CR,” “NC,” a student may repeat a course in which the previously received grade was an “AUD.” Registrations under the “CR/NC” option are subject to the restrictions in the “CR/NC” policy
  • A graded course (“A-F”) may not be repeated for a grade of “AUD”
  • A course taken under the “CR/NC” option may not be repeated for a grade of “AUD”
  • With the dean’s permission, a student may substitute another course if the previous course is no longer offered. Courses must be repeated at The University of Akron
  • Grades for all attempts at a course will appear on the student’s official academic record
  • Only the grade for the last attempt will be used in the grade-point average
  • All grades for attempts at a course will be used in grade-point calculation for the purpose of determining graduation with honors and class standing
  • For purposes of this section, credit for this course or its equivalent will apply only once toward meeting degree requirements
