Withdraw, Cancellation and Drops
Students are responsible for dropping or withdrawing from courses by the deadline dates in the Academic Calendar. Courses may be dropped through the end of the second week of the term. Dropped courses will not appear on an academic transcript. Students may withdraw from courses in weeks 3 through 7. A withdrawn course will appear on the transcript with a grade as a "W".
Students who plan to drop or withdraw from all of their courses should speak with the Registrar's Office or review and complete all applicable steps on the Withdraw Checklist. The Registrar's Office is the designated point of contact for students withdrawing from Portland State. Students who are receiving financial aid or scholarships and drop or withdraw from all courses may need to repay some or all of their financial assistance to the university. Please speak with the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships to discuss the return of funds.
