Drops and Withdrawals

Dropping or Withdrawing from K-State can have a number of consequences beyond leaving courses. Please select the appropriate checklist and follow the steps indicated to ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible. Prior to withdrawing from K-State, please be sure to see the academic calendar for withdrawal and refund deadlines. In addition, there are a number of items to consider before withdrawing.


Summer Semester:

A summer withdrawal requires no approval from the student's academic dean's office. Students should drop their courses in KSIS.

Refer to courses.k-state.edu/courses >Course Schedules > Academic Term > Course schedule > K-State's schedule of courses by college and department with instructions for non-standard drop and refund dates.



Appeal for Late Drop/Withdrawal After Deadline

 Students requesting to drop or withdraw from a class or classes for which the drop or withdrawal deadline has passed are required to fill out the fillable PDF: Late Drop/Withdrawal Appeal Form or fillable Word Doc: Late Drop/Withdrawal Appeal Form, and work with their Academic Advisor and College Dean's Office for signatures and submission to the University Late Drop/Withdrawal Committee.

  • Appeals filed after the semester’s end are unlikely to be granted unless extenuating circumstances beyond the student’s control prevented the student from meeting relevant registration and appeal deadlines. 

  • Appeals filed after a degree has been awarded will not be considered. 

  • An approved late drop or withdrawal does not automatically mean a refund will be approved.  Refunds cannot be made for classes in which the student is still enrolled and any prior requests for refunds of tuition and fees are considered when determining approval or denial of a request.
