This is a reminder that the Spring 2018 Course Withdrawal deadline is
Thursday, April 12.
Course withdrawal forms are available in the Registrar’s Office, 20 Prov Wash, 1st Floor. If you intend to withdraw from a course, you must submit an instructor signed “Course Withdrawal Form” to the Registrar’s Office by 4:30pm April 12.
A grade of “W” will be recorded on the permanent record, which does not count negatively in the RISD grade point average. Note: If you withdraw from a course and drop below the 12 credit semester minimum, you will be subject to Academic Probation at the end of the semester. All international students (F-1 visas) must be enrolled for a minimum of 12 credits; falling below 12 credits could violate your immigration status (please contact OISS for more information). Courses graded Audit (AU) and Withdrawn do not count toward the attempted minimum credit loads for the semester ‘Full time Enrollment Requirement’.
See the RISD Policies page for more information: http://policies.risd.edu/.
