A student is permitted a maximum of four withdrawals from courses taken at Juniata College during the undergraduate career. Allowances for medical withdrawals and other unusual circumstances may be made via appeal to the Student Academic Development Committee.

A withdrawal grade of WF or WP is recorded when a student drops a course after the official drop/add period at the beginning of the semester and before the withdrawal deadline. WP signifies that at the time of the withdrawal the student was passing the course. While a WF signifies that at the time of the withdrawal the student was failing the course; WP and WF grades are not calculated into the GPA.

A student may withdraw from a course up to the scheduled mid-point of the term with the permission of the student's faculty instructor and the advisors. Withdrawal after the "Mid-Term" date is not usually permitted except in an unusual circumstance requiring written approval from the faculty and the Registrar. Refer to the current academic calendar on the WEB for the mid-term date. The deadline is 12:00 noon on the last day of classes each semester. Unofficial withdrawals from all courses are recorded as F. Withdrawals from class are considered unofficial if the student fails to make satisfactory arrangements at the Office of the Registrar.
