Withdrawal from the University

Student Assistance Request

Withdrawal From the University

UIC takes seriously the decision of any student to suspend studies and withdraw from their program. Whether for academic, financial, or other personal reasons, such actions are understood to be life-changing. Students considering such actions are strongly encouraged to seek the advice of the Office of the Dean of Students, their academic advisors and the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships to understand the implications of the decision.

Students in the graduate and professional schools who decide to withdraw from their programs-of-study should meet with their college’s Dean’s office to review their plans.

Also, International students should report their decision to withdraw to the Office of International Affairs.

WARNING: If you withdraw from a course and your total enrollment goes below 12 credits, it may affect your health insurance coverage, your on-campus housing for your next semester, or your financial aid award.  Please check with Financial Aid Services, Patient Services, and Residential Student Services.
