Complete Withdrawal from the University

Students are both academically and financially responsible for all classes in which they register until they officially withdraw from the University. Consult the Registrar's website for withdrawal procedures and information on the University tuition refund policies. Students who withdraw are no longer able to use University services to which they previously had access.

A GE who withdraws from the University must:

1. Log on and withdraw from classes using DuckWeb.

  • An alert message will appear that reads, “STOP…Our records indicate that your student status does not permit you to continue with this withdrawal process on DuckWeb” and the student will be informed that they must consult with Graduate School staff.
  • If a complete withdrawal from the graduate program is permitted, the Graduate School will determine whether the GE will keep the current tuition waiver and insurance, and will complete a withdrawal permission form that will be sent to the Registrar's Office on the student's behalf.
  • If the student is no longer eligible for the GE tuition waiver, they will be subject to regular resident or non-resident graduate tuition rates and appropriate withdrawal fees and penalties will apply as outlined by the Office of the Registrar (see Refund Schedule).


2. Submit a formal letter of resignation to the hiring unit.

  • This letter should include the effective date of resignation. This will become the stop-date on the ePRF.


3. Schedule and hold an exit interview with a financial aid counselor if the GE receives financial aid/loans.


4. File an on-leave form with the Graduate School if they plan to return to UO at any time in the future.

  • Please keep in mind that on-leave status requires that the student be in good standing, and that there are limits on the number of terms of on-leave status a student can take. Refer to the on-leave policy for details
