Latest Updates for Summer 2020

NEW: All Summer Withdrawals Will Be Excused

All Summer Withdrawals Will Be Excused

The deadline to withdraw from any class during the 2020 summer session has been extended, and any withdrawal will be treated as an excused withdrawal, or EW. The new deadline will be Friday, Aug. 7 for six-week classes that began the week of June 29. 

  • An EW does not count against limits on repeating a class, which means you can take the class again
  • An EW will not count against your course completion rate for purposes of probation
  • You can use MyPortal to drop a class and it will be treated as an excused withdrawal

Any withdrawal initiated by an instructor will also be treated as an excused withdrawal. 

PLEASE NOTE: This is a temporary policy in response to the unusual circumstances of the coronavirus outbreak. The policy may change after summer session.
