Our Best Answer How do I petition to drop a course late?
Dropping a course at this point in the semester will require approval from University Division. On rare occasions, University Division students might be faced with extenuating circumstances that have prevented them from being able to drop a class by the Auto-W deadline. If you feel that your situation falls into a rare circumstance where you were not able to drop by the Auto-W deadline, you may petition for approval for a late withdrawal from the course. Please keep in mind that poor performance in a course does not qualify for requesting a petition to drop a course after the Auto- W deadline.
More information, as well as the Late Drop Petition form, can be found on the University Division website.
