  • Student Initiated Drop Form
    If you need to withdraw from a class after the twelfth day of classes (Official Reporting Day) [4th class day in summer terms], you must gain your instructor's signature to drop a class. This form must be submitted to the Office of the University Registrar in the Welcome Center by the close of business of the last day to drop a class. We also ask that you notify your advisor. On or before the twelfth day of classes, students have access to drop classes online through myUH.

  • Student Initiated Term Withdrawal Form
    After the first day of classes each semester, students wishing to drop all of their classes for the semester must complete this form to request a full term withdrawal. Additionally, if this request occurs after the twelfth day of classes, you must also submit a student-initiated drop form for each class.  Also, international students also have to attach a completed and approved Reduced Course Load form with this request. Please also notify your MSW program advisor.

    This form is used when a student is withdrawing from a term for documented medical or administrative reasons (including military deployment and death of an immediate family member). Appropriate documentation should be attached to the request. Withdrawal paperwork should be submitted to your advisor to begin the approval/disapproval process.
