Thinking of Withdrawing?
If you’re considering withdrawing from your course, contact your course coordinator as soon as possible. They could help you get back on track.
“Withdrawal without academic penalty” date means you get a benign “WD” grade instead of a negative “DC” grade. “Withdrawal without financial penalty” means you can be refunded the course tuition fees.
