6.16.3. Withdrawal Period

For purposes of this policy, the duration of any session is defined to be the number of days between the first day of classes and the last day of classes for that session, excluding any reading (or “dead”) day and dedicated final examination days. The “withdrawal period” of the session in question is defined as the first 60 percent of the duration of that session. For courses scheduled to be completed in less time than is allotted in the full session in which such courses reside, the withdrawal period is the first 60 percent of the timeframe in which the course is actually scheduled.
