2014-2015 Academic Catalog: Withdrawal From Wentworth

Voluntary Withdrawal

A student seeking to officially withdraw from Wentworth must complete the Voluntary Withdrawal Form and contact the Student Service Center.

This withdrawal date is effective on the date the student submits the Voluntary Withdrawal Petition Form or the date the student notifies the Student Service Center of their intent to withdraw whichever is earlier.

If the student notifies the Student Service Center of their intent to withdraw, but then continues to participate in academic activity (such as attendance in lecture, lab or studio, taking exams, submitting reports or projects, or participating in online coursework), the effective date will be the last date of attendance at an academically-related activity.

If the student withdraws before or on the last day to withdraw from classes with “W” grades, as determined in the academic calendar, the student will receive “W” grades for all classes that do not have a final grade. Students who withdraw after that date will receive final grades for all classes that do not already have a final grade.

Students who have been issued a laptop must return it to the Division of Technology Services. Failure to return the laptop will lead to a recovery fee charged to the student’s account.

Students who submit a Voluntary Withdrawal Petition Form after the last day of a completed term but before the first day of class of the following term will be given an effective withdrawal date of the date the student notifies the Student Service Center of their intent to withdraw, or on the date the student submits their Voluntary Withdrawal Petition Form, whichever is earlier.

Voluntary Withdrawal – College of Professional & Continuing Education

College for Professional and Continuing Education students who wish to withdraw from a College for Continuing and Professional Education program at Wentworth during the semester must complete the Voluntary Withdrawal Petition Form. This is the same form used to withdraw from day programs.

Students should meet with the College for Continuing & Professional Education Dean of Lifelong Learning or their specified designee to inform them of their withdrawal from the school.  

This withdrawal date is effective on the date the student submits the Voluntary Withdrawal Petition Form or the date the student notifies the Student Service Center of their intent to withdraw whichever is earlier.

The same deadlines for withdrawal and refunds apply to College for Continuing and Professional Education students.

If the student withdraws before or on the last day to withdraw from classes with “W” grades, as determined in the academic calendar, the student will receive “W” grades for all classes that do not have a final grade. Students who withdraw after that date will receive final grades for all classes that do not already have a final grade.

Any College of Professional and Continuing Education student who takes two or more consecutive semesters off must be approved to return to the Institute through an approved Change of Major/Readmission form by the College for Continuing and Professional Education. The guidelines noted in “Change of Program” must be followed.
