An "unofficial" withdrawal occurs when a student fails to attend or ceases attending all classes without submitting a resignation card to the Registrar's Office. Instructors may, but are not required to, administratively "drop" a student who is not attending. It is the student's responsibility to officially "drop" a class or resign from Louisiana Tech. If a student fails to do so, then an "F" or "W" grade will be entered.
At the end of the each quarter a report is produced with a list of students who have not successfully completed any courses (all grades are a combination of "F", "W", "I", "NC", or "I +GRADE"). The student's attendance is reviewed to determine if the Return of Title IV Funds policy must be applied. Please read Unofficial Withdrawal Procedures if you are receiving Federal Financial Aid.
