Exception Procedures


If you are withdrawing from a class after the add/drop date or after the refund period with extenuating circumstances, you may fill out an exception to drop form with the Registrar.

Filling out this exception to drop does not guarantee that your charges will be removed.  The Registrar will review your request and send you notice that it has either been approved or denied.

  • You may submit an exception to the charges to if you have withdrawn from a class or done an all-school withdrawal.

  • In your email please give as many details as possible about your situation, provide valid documentation of your extenuating circumstances, and explain the reasons why you feel the charges should be dropped.

**Before you decide to withdraw or drop classes, please talk with the Financial Aid office!  The money you received for grants, loans, or scholarships may be adjusted or taken back, making you responsible to pay this back to the University.**

Tuition Insurance


Consider tuition insurance to protect your investment.

What happens when your student’s education is disrupted by an unexpected injury or illness?  Depending on the timing of the withdrawal, you may not be eligible to receive a refund of all of your tuition and fees.

GradGuard’s Tuition Protection Insurance Plan helps students and their families overcome the financial losses that may result from events which force students to withdraw from the semester due to a covered illness, injury, or mental health reason. Helping families get the most out of your UW experience is always our top priority. That’s why we’ve partnered with GradGuard to make the Tuition Insurance Plan available to our families.

This coverage strengthens our existing refund policy by ensuring reimbursement for tuition, housing and other payments if a student withdraws for any covered medical reason at any time during the semester.

Please remember the deadline to enroll is the day before classes begin each semester.
