Continuous registration in the Spring, Summer and Fall terms of each year of your program is required for part-time and full-time graduate students.
Students can log onto the Bridge to withdraw from one or more courses in a given term/session.
If you wish to withdraw from any of your courses or program (thesis), contact the School of Graduate Studies prior to withdrawing. Graduate students are required, by policy, to maintain continuous registration in their programs (3 terms per year). Graduate students should review the Leave of Absence policy published in the Graduate Studies Calendar.
MA, MFA, MMus, MSc, and Ph.D.: Contact your Supervisor in the event that you need to withdraw from one or more of your courses following the add/drop deadline.
MC, MEd, MHSMgt, MN, MSc Health Sciences (all majors), MSc (Mgt), Graduate Diploma (AMHP), and Graduate Certificate (HSMgt, ACSA) programs: Contact the relevant Faculty office in the event that you need to withdraw from one or more of your courses following the add/drop deadline.
The deadlines for withdrawals are found in the ULethbridge Graduate Studies Calendar and Course Catalogue.
Withdrawal with Cause:
Sometimes there are extenuating circumstances beyond your control that make the continuation of a course impossible. In this case, you may be granted a ‘Withdrawal with Cause’ and will be asked to provide evidence that the conditions that led to the withdrawal have been identified and addressed.
Did You Know? Both a Withdrawal (W) and Withdrawal with Cause (WC) will be recorded on your student transcript. However, if you take the course over again to achieve a grade, both attempts will show on your transcript (the W and the latest grade).
