Students are expected to drop/withdraw themselves from courses in SharkLink. Students withdrawing from their last or only registered course within a given term or students experiencing other problems withdrawing themselves should contact their program advisor. If necessary, students may submit a withdrawal request in writing via postal mail or assigned NSU email account. Requests for withdrawals received after 11:59 PM EST on the withdrawal deadline date will not be accepted.
Failure to attend course(s) or participate in course activities during the first week of the term may result in automatic removal from courses. Beyond the first week of the term, it is the student's responsibility to communicate with the university if they wish to be removed from courses. Depending on the date of drop/withdrawal, the student may be eligible for a partial refund. Students who have not withdrawn on or before the withdrawal deadline date will receive letter grades that reflect their performance in the course(s). The program office will confirm receipt of withdrawal requests that are received by the withdrawal deadline date. When a withdrawal request has been confirmed, the transcript will show a grade of W for the course.
