Pass/No Credit Option Allows Students to Avoid a Withdrawal!

It is in students’ best interest to earn the highest possible grade to maximize their learning and to meet expectations for grades required for graduate and professional schools, employment, and licensure. However, the expanded Pass/No Credit option is again being offered in recognition of the multiple challenges to student well-being and with the remote/modified learning environment due to COVID-19. This option gives students the opportunity to persist beyond the typical withdrawal period, knowing that once grades are posted for the term, they can select Pass or No Credit, rather than receiving a poor grade. The Pass/No Credit grading option for eligible Spring 2021 courses will be available for students to choose via Self-Service Banner from May 18 through June 4, 2021.  Visit the FAQs regarding the Pass/No Credit Option. Note: This option is not available to students enrolled in MD, DO, or PhD programs. Some graduate courses have minimum grade requirements.

If withdrawing is the only viable option, please note that this term the regular and late withdrawal periods are being combined into a single withdrawal period. The withdrawal deadline for full-term courses is 4/12/21, and all withdrawals this term will be assigned a W. Please note that there is no reduction of tuition and fees for withdrawal. 

Students should follow these steps to request a Course Withdrawal:

  1. Students copy and paste the information (including these instructions) below into a new email.
  2. Students must complete the “Student & Course Information.”
  3. Students must send the email to the PROFESSOR of the course.
  4. The professor will complete the “Professor Information & Approval” details and then send the email to registrar@rowan.edu.
  5. The email must be received within posted deadlines* (by 4/12/21 for full-term courses) and the Registrar Team will honor the date it is received.
  6. When the withdrawal is processed both the student and the faculty member will receive a confirmation email.
