Course Withdrawal

Permission to withdraw from courses after the deadline for dropping of courses will only be given under exceptional circumstances, such as illness, personal or academic problems, or other unforeseen circumstances deemed acceptable to the course instructor concerned and the Academic Registrar.


Students who wish to withdraw from a course can submit an Application for Course Withdrawal via the Online Form system in BUniPort. Application must be submitted at least 4 weeks prior to the examination period for that semester.  Approval of the course withdrawal is subject to the endorsement of the course instructor concerned and the approval of the Academic Registrar.

Course approved for withdrawal will be assigned a "W" grade.  Grade "W" is NOT included in GPA calculation.


Students will be informed of the application result via email.
