Term Withdrawal Appeal

Students who have been denied their request for a Term Withdrawal have the right to appeal this decision with the Withdrawal Review Committee. Appeals of a denied withdrawal must be filed within ten (10) calendar days from the date of the denial email. If the tenth (10th) calendar day falls on a weekend or University holiday, the deadline for filing the appeal will be extended to the next University business day. Failure to submit the appeal within this time limit will render the original decision final and conclusive.

The Withdrawal Review Committee is made up of faculty representatives, a representative from the University’s Academic Advising Services office, and administrative representatives from Registration and Records, the Graduate School, and the Division of Academic and Student Affairs.

Withdrawal Appeal Process

The appeal will be reviewed by the Withdrawal Review Committee using the information provided in the Withdrawal Application – both in the application itself and the uploaded documentation.

To submit your appeal, please fill out and submit this form.

Appeal decisions will be communicated to students via their NC State email address within two weeks of the date of submission, excluding days that are University holidays. The decision by the Withdrawal Review Committee should be considered final and conclusive. For more information, please refer to: https://policies.ncsu.edu/regulation/reg-02-05-04
