6.24.3. Death of a Student

From an administrative viewpoint, the death of a student is treated as a withdrawal from the University, and is subject to the policies and procedures outlined in Sec. 6.24.1., except that when the death occurs the only grade which can be assigned is “W” (withdrew), never “WF” (withdrew failing).

Some of the financial and financial aid implications associated with the death of a student are explored in Sec. 5.18.
