It is important that students fully understand the educational and financial consequences of a decision to withdraw from the school. Any student who wishes to withdraw from the school should complete the school Withdrawal Form and provide to a school representative, who in receipt of the Form must provide it to the Campus Director. A student who is absent from four consecutive classes in all course(s) will be administratively withdrawn from the school, regardless of whether the student submitted school Withdrawal Form.
Before withdrawing from a course, program, or from the school, a student should confer with an Academic Advisor and the Business Office and follow NATI ESL policies for withdrawal. Students withdrawing or administratively withdrawn before the last day to withdraw without academic penalty will receive a grade of “W” (withdrew). The last day to withdraw without academic penalty is at the 25% of clock hours required for a course or program. Students withdrawing or administratively withdrawn after the last day to withdraw without academic penalty will receive a “WF” (withdrew failing) for the course. Withdrawal deadlines are indicated in each class schedule.
A course from which a student has withdrawn and received a “W” grade will not affect the student’s CGPA. The course hours will, however, be added into hours attempted for the purpose of evaluating the student’s maximum time frame for completion and successful course or program completion. Courses from which a student has withdrawn and received a “W” or “WF” grade will affect the student’s CGPA as well as their maximum time frame for completion and successful course completion.
