In order to withdraw from an upperlevel* course, you must download this form and schedule an appointment to meet with an Academic Advisor (see links below). The form should be completed (including obtaining any professor or other required permissions, if applicable) and submitted to the Advisor prior to the meeting. The form must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar no later than the last day of class for the course in which you are requesting the withdrawal, so please plan accordingly. If you attempt to schedule an appointment with an Advisor at the very last minute, there is a risk that you will be unable to meet with the Advisor and withdraw from the course. Students who do not receive approval by the last day of class are expected to complete all course requirements.
*This form applies only to upperlevel course withdraw requests. J.D. students who are considering withdrawing from a first-year course (including those taken during the upperclass years by part-time students) must contact the Dean of Students. J.D. students who are considering withdrawing from a clinic should see pages 33-34 of the Student Handbook (http://www.law.georgetown.edu/go/handbook) or contact the Assistant Dean for Experiential Education for more information.
Below is a link to the Academic Advisors. Those authorized to approve course withdrawals are so designated
Note: Foreign exchange students should first contact Cara Morris, at 202-662-9860.
