Official (Student-Initiated) Withdrawal Policy:
Students who choose to withdraw from Saybrook University must submit notice in writing to their Academic Advisor and the Registrar's Office through a Withdrawal Form or through a submission to the Academic Portal.
Students should be aware that withdrawal after the Add/Drop deadline is likely to impact their Financial Aid and Satisfactory Academic Progress status. Students who drop after the Add/Drop deadline will earn either W or WF grades based on the deadlines listed in the Academic Calendar.
Students should consult the GPA and Rate of Progress Calculator in their Academic Portal to determine their academic progress impacts. The Satisfactory Academic Progress evaluation is processed for all students prior to processing of their withdrawal request. We encourage students to consult with the Financial Aid Office about financial aid eligibility, repayment, and return of aid consequences of withdrawing.
Once a student is withdrawn, they will no longer be considered an active Saybrook University student and will lose all access to Saybrook resources such as (but not limited to) the Academic Portal, Library, Canvas, and Saybrook Email. We encourage all students to first schedule an appointment with their Academic Advisor before making the decision to withdraw from the university.
Your Academic Advisor is your point of contact for determining how the decision to withdraw may impact you, and to help you navigate the process.

For unofficial withdrawals, a student's withdrawal date is the last day of the last session/semester attended or any later date which the institution documents as the last date of attendance by the student. Administrative withdrawals will be processed the day after the Add/Drop deadline.
Once a student is withdrawn, they will no longer be considered an active Saybrook University student and will lose all access to Saybrook resources such as (but not limited to) the Academic Portal, Library, Canvas, and Saybrook Email.
