Students who drop their entire course load by definition withdraw from The University of Texas at Austin for the semester.
To withdraw from the Graduate School, the student must file a Withdrawal and Refund Request form, which may be obtained from the Graduate School in Main 101, with the Dean of the Graduate School. The form explains refund policies.
When a student is unable to complete a withdrawal on campus, a signed request to withdraw may be faxed to the Graduate School at 512-475-8851. All requests for withdrawal must be accompanied by an acknowledgment from the student’s graduate advisor.
A student may withdraw through the last class day of the semester, but academic appointments may not extend beyond the effective date of a student’s withdrawal.
