Requests for Retroactive Registration or Backdated Withdrawal

A backdated withdrawal will be considered upon the receipt of a request, which is supported by documentation verifying medical reasons or compassionate grounds. Documentation must indicate the reason(s) the student was not able to withdraw before the registration system closed or must note the medical reason(s) or compassionate grounds, which will make it impossible for the course to now be completed. Requests submitted without supporting documentation will not be considered. The Request for a Backdated Withdrawal form may be found on the Forms webpage.
 
Before the last day of lectures, a request for retroactive registration will be considered upon the receipt of supporting documentation, which outlines the reason(s) why formal registration did not occur. A Course Add/Withdrawal Form signed and dated by the course instructor verifying that the student has been in continuous attendance must accompany this documentation. The Request for a Retroactive Registration form may be found on the Forms webpage.
 
Requests for retroactive registration or backdated withdrawal are considered and the Registrar renders a decision.
 
Appeals Procedure
Students wishing to appeal the decision of the Registrar must refer the matter to the appropriate academic Dean. If the student is not satisfied with the decision of the Dean, the student may then appeal to the Senate Student Appeals Board. Appeals to the Senate Student Appeals Board must be typed, must provide any additional documentation not submitted to the Dean and must be accompanied by the appeal fee. The fee will be refunded only if the appeal is successful. When appropriate, the grade NW (not Withdrawn) may be assigned by the Senate Committee on Appeals within the specified appeal period and when supporting documentation is supplied by the student.
