Student Initiated Withdrawal
In addition to following the procedure for dropping a course, students must return all library books and laboratory equipment and have their UH record clear in every respect. Students who wish to withdraw must thoroughly review and complete the Student Request for Official Withdrawal form (PDF) and submit to the Registrar's Office in the Welcome Center, or fax it to 713-743-8342.
Students whose enrollment in a course is terminated on or before the last day to drop or withdraw without receiving a grade (a date listed in the academic calendar and in the class schedule) will not have courses appear on permanent records, and grades will not be assigned. When terminations are made after this date, the message and date of withdrawal will appear, grades of W (withdrawal, either passing or with no evaluative data available at the time of drop) or F (withdrawal, failing) will be assigned by the instructor at the close of the semester, and the courses and grades will appear on the permanent records.
Students are responsible for initiating action to drop or withdraw from classes on or before the last day to drop a course. Students who fail to do so will be retained on the class rolls even though they may be absent for the remainder of the semester. In such instances grades of F (or U in S/U graded courses) will be given unless mitigating circumstances warrant grades of I (incomplete).
