Withdrawal from UW-Stout

How and What Happens

Withdrawal should be undertaken only after serious consideration. To ensure careful consideration of the intention to withdraw, to protect the students from the dangers which may result from failure to use the approved withdrawal procedures and to assist university officials who are concerned with withdrawals, the following procedure has been established:

The person intending to withdraw from the university reports to the Registration and Records Office, 109 Bowman Hall. Once the withdrawal form is completed and signed by the student, it will be processed when it is returned to the Registration and Records office.

On completion of the withdrawal procedure, a mark of "WD" will be recorded for all courses in which a student is enrolled, if the student withdraws from the university prior to the midterm date. After the midterm date (as indicated in the university calendar), students may not officially withdraw from the university unless there are extenuating circumstances. In cases of extenuating circumstances, please contact the Dean of Students Office, 130 Bowman Hall, 715-232-1181 for further information on official withdrawal from UW-Stout.

Withdrawal Fee

If a student withdraws within the first two weeks of the semester, an administrative fee, (withdrawal fee), not to exceed $50.00 may be assessed during the first session week and up to $100 during the second session week.
