This is a reminder that the Wintersession 2023 Course Withdrawal deadline is
Friday, January 27.
Course withdrawal forms are available in etrieve, the Registrar’s Office system for electronic forms and workflows. If you intend to withdraw from a course, you must fill out a “Course Withdrawal Form” by the end of the day on January 27.
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 3 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 3 credits; falling below 3 credits could violate your immigration status (please contact OISS for more information). Courses graded Audit (AU) and Withdrawn ( W ) do not count toward the attempted minimum credit loads for the semester ‘Full time Enrollment Requirement’.
