A: Contact the Access and Accommodations Center to review services provided by their office, https://access.gsu.edu/about-us/frequently-asked-questions/.
Q: Have you experienced a non-academic emergency situation that prevents you from completing your coursework (such as a traumatic event)?
A: You may be eligible for an Emergency Withdrawal. Students may request an Emergency Withdrawal when a non-academic emergency situation occurs that prevents them from completing their coursework (e.g., severe medical problems, traumatic events) and when the timing or nature of the emergency prevents them from voluntarily withdrawing from their classes.
If considering an emergency withdrawal, contact the Office of the Dean of Students as early as possible to determine the best option for you, at deanofstudents.gsu.edu.
Q: Considering withdrawing from a course because of poor performance on course work?
A: We recommend speaking with the instructor first to seek the best course of action. After speaking with your instructor, if you decide to proceed with withdrawing from the course, check with an academic advisor to see how a withdrawal will affect your degree completion plans.
Q: Course Offerings - Considering withdrawing and wondering when the course may be offered again?
A: Future course offerings are available via your PAWS account. You may also access the following link that provides a projection of when courses will be offered again by the department, https://cas.gsu.edu/projected-course-schedules/.
Please note that these are only projections and are subject to change.
Q: Impact on Graduation - Considering withdrawing and wondering how this will impact your graduation status?
A: Check with an academic advisor to see how a withdrawal will affect your degree completion plans.
Q: Minimum Course Grade Needed - Considering withdrawing and wondering what minimum grade is needed to pass a course?
A: Check the GSU Undergraduate Catalog for minimum grades required to pass each course. Remember to access the catalog of the year that you enrolled or matriculated into your degree program located on the top of your academic evaluation.
An academic advisor can also help you confirm this.
