Course policy notes

Changes to the Wayne State grading policy were approved by the University's Board of Governors effective fall term 2022:


  • All withdrawals will show as a W on the transcript. W marks are not calculated in your GPA.
  • There is no tuition cancellation for withdrawn courses.

The request to withdraw can be made on Academica. It is located in the Student Resource area, Registration menu, and then select Course Withdrawal.

NOTE: The course drop process during the first two weeks of the semester remains the same as before, with tuition cancellation available only for classes dropped in the first two weeks of the term.
