The last day to withdraw from a course and receive a "W" grade is the end of the tenth week of the regular semester. Students may withdraw themselves from courses via LOCUS unless they have a Hold on their account that prevents them from withdrawing, if they are part-time, or if they are dropping below 12 credit hours.
