Students who drop their entire course load by definition withdraw from The University of Texas at Austin for the term.
To withdraw from the Graduate School, the student must file a Withdrawal and Refund Request form, which may be obtained by emailing Graduate Student Services at the link above or by contacting your program graduate coordinator. The form explains refund policies.
A student may withdraw through the last class day of the term, but academic appointments may not extend beyond the effective date of a student’s withdrawal.
All requests for withdrawal must be accompanied by an acknowledgment from the student’s graduate advisor and emailed to the same email address for processing.
Students in Warning Status
Students in a warning status because of failure to maintain a grade-point average of at least 3.0 may not withdraw without a petition from the graduate adviser and the approval of the graduate dean.
