Withdrawal from All Classes

If you wish to drop selected courses, but remain enrolled in some of your courses, do not withdraw from all subjects. Please contact your academic advisor for more information about how to drop specific courses.

All students attending IU Bloomington (EXCEPT students in UNIVERSITY DIVISION, INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS and LAW STUDENTS) who wish to withdraw from all classes after the first week of the semester must do so through our office.

On Campus: If you are on campus, you should come to our office during normal business hours. No appointment is required for withdrawals and the process usually takes about 5 – 15 minutes. If withdrawing after the automatic W deadline (mid-semester), you’ll be required to speak with an advocate because serious academic consequences could accompany a late withdrawal.

Off Campus: If you are away from campus, you may withdraw from all subjects by sending a FAX to 812-855-2259 with a request to withdraw, the reason, your name, address, phone number, student ID number and your SIGNATURE. Once received, the withdrawal will be processed within 24 hours. A receipt will be sent to the address provided on your request.

Please note: Withdrawing from all classes may have consequences on your academic progress, financial aid or scholarship eligibility and other areas related to your student status. For these reasons, we strongly encourage you to speak with an advocate while going through this process. You may do so in person or by phone if you are not in Bloomington at the time of your withdrawal.  Please contact our office for additional information.
