B.5.a) Course Withdrawal

A graduate student may withdraw online from a course in which he/she is registered via the online Student Centre at MyUofC, any time up to and including the deadline dates given in the Academic Schedule section of this Calendar. Students are not permitted to withdraw online more than once from the same course. Tuition fees will be refunded only if the student drops a course on or before the last day to drop courses for that term according to the academic schedule.

Note: All withdrawals after the posted deadline will be recorded on the student transcript.

B.5.b) Program Withdrawal

A student wishing to withdraw from the Faculty of Graduate Studies should complete a Graduate Withdrawal form, available at

Fees for subsequent terms will be cancelled upon withdrawal notification.

A student in a course-based program who withdraws from a program without having taken a course during the year will not be refunded the tuition fee assessment of the equivalent of a graduate half course fee for the registration year unless the student withdraws from program before the fee payment deadline in his/her annual registration month.

When a student withdraws from the Faculty of Graduate Studies, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all outstanding fees are paid.

After a required withdrawal from a graduate program at the University of Calgary, a student may not apply to another graduate program at the University of Calgary until a year after the final decision to require withdrawal has been made.

Students under academic review will not be permitted to withdraw during the review process.
