- Withdrawal during the last third of the quarter: receive full credit and letter grade; courses specified. Student must arrange with instructors on submission of final grades.
- A student required to withdraw during his or her final quarter before obtaining the baccalaureate degree may be granted the degree if approved by the dean of his or her college, major department, or if in teacher education, the College of Education.
- Veteran students who re-enter the university no later than one year after discharge will be guaranteed a place at Western.
- No re-entry fees will be charged to re-entering veterans who return to Western no later than one year after discharge.
Students who are called to active duty should notify the Registrar's Office immediately upon receiving orders so that assistance can be provided in making all necessary arrangements for withdrawal and full tuition refund, or in the case of late-term call-up, awarding of grades and credit.
