Withdrawal


Withdrawal from a Course

LIM College students may withdraw from a course up until noon of the last day of the posted withdrawal period. Withdrawals can only be done by submitting a fully completed and signed Graduate Studies - Course Withdrawal form to the Office of the Registrar. Emails, phone requests, or withdrawal attempts submitted to other offices or administrators are not acceptable.

Students should be aware that withdrawing from a course may affect their graduation plans and that withdrawing from enough courses to go below full-time (9 credits) or half-time status (6 credits) can affect eligibility for financial aid in both the current and upcoming semesters. Students who are unsure of how a withdrawal will affect them should speak with the Chair of Graduate Studies or designee and Student Financial Services counselor prior to submitting the withdrawal paperwork. Please note that once submitted, a withdrawal from a course cannot be reversed. If a student is withdrawing from all remaining courses in a semester it is considered a Withdrawal from the Institution (see below).


Withdrawal from the Institution

It may become necessary for a student to interrupt or cease studies after the semester has already begun. In such cases, if it is prior to the institution’s official withdrawal deadline, a student should officially withdraw. Withdrawal from all classes, whether student-initiated or administratively initiated, is considered a withdrawal from LIM College for that semester. If a student is considering withdrawing, it is highly advisable that he/she read through and thoroughly understand the issues explained in the brochure What it Means to Withdraw  prior to submitting withdrawal paperwork.

Withdrawing from the institution can only be done by completing the appropriate form and submitting it to the Office of the Registrar. Emails, phone requests, or withdrawal attempts submitted to other offices or administrators are not acceptable. Withdrawal forms can be obtained by emailing Registrar@limcollege.edu.
