A student must officially drop a course or an "F" grade will be assigned for courses never attended. Withdrawal after a grade of "F" has been assigned is not an option. Tuition must be paid if a class has not been officially dropped. A student who never attended a course should email the Registrar's Office to request a grade change to a W from an F.

Students who withdraw during the 100% refund (add/drop) period for any term will have all of their aid for that term cancelled and returned. Students who drop below the number of hours reflected in their financial aid budget during the add/drop period may also have their budget adjusted to reflect the new hours and aid adjustment.
Withdrawal from the University

Before completing the Withdrawal Form, it is important that you review your decision with your academic adviser at TWC.
Students who have received federal or state funds through financial aid programs must also have an exit interview with the Financial Aid Office. The Women's College of the University of Denver recognizes that students sometimes must take a leave from the university. Below are policies regarding other types of withdrawal and related information.
Leave of Absence
The TWC Leave of Absence program allows undergraduate students to take a leave of absence for up four quarters or one academic year. A Leave of Absence allows students to formally withdraw from the University, but are guaranteed re-admittance if they return within four academic quarters, as long as the student has not been suspended or dismissed for judicial or academic reasons. . One quarter before the scheduled return, students should contact a TWC academic adviser. After completing an Application to Re-Enter, the student is then eligible to register. The process of completing the Leave of Absence application ensures that students receive appropriate advising and understand financial aid implications, as applicable to each student. Leave of Absence forms are available on-line with this link.
Medical Leave of Absence
Undergraduate students who are unable to complete a term due to medical reasons can apply for medical leave of absence. The medical leave of absence form is available on-line. A maximum of three (3) medical leaves during the student's academic career are granted.
A student who is not in academic good standing at the time of withdrawal must contact a TWC academic adviser before readmission.
Incomplete coursework needs to be finished per the due date agreed to by the instructor and student. A grade of "I" will turn into an "F" if coursework has not been finished by the date due.
Undergraduate students in The Women's College should contact a TWC academic adviser at 303-871-6032 or 303-871-6430 for re-entry information and must complete the TWC Application for Re-Entry.

If the student chooses to apply five (5) weeks or less prior to the quarter beginning, the financial aid package may be affected and/or delayed.
Students returning from Medical Leave of Absence must complete the TWC Application for Medical Re-Entry form accompanied with a completed Treating Health Care Provider Questionnaire.

After notification of an open position, students must register within 24 hours or lose their place on the waitlist.
