Add/Drop & Withdrawal Deadlines

Effective: May 1, 2019

This policy referred to as the WVPU Add, Drop and Withdrawal policy may differ slightly from similar policies of Webster University – Webster Groves or other international campuses.

It is the student's responsibility to file the appropriate course Add / Drop or Withdrawal forms by the stated deadlines. These forms can be found in each academic department.

The policy consists of a schedule of deadlines and refund rates applied to students taking courses at WVPU. The schedule is as follows:

  Deadline 16-week course (semester) REFUND 5, 8, or 9-week course (term) REFUND 3-week (May term)
Add Friday of Week 1 -- -- First day of class


Friday of Week 1*

100% 100% Day 2 of class: 100%
Withdrawal Friday of Week 2* 75% 50% Day 3 of class: 0%
Withdrawal After Refund Deadline: Varies** 0% 0% 0%

* In case courses beginning later than week 1, the deadlines for drop/withdrawal is extended to the end of the first and respectively second week of the first session.

** This has no effect on the terminal dates by which students may withdraw from courses, which remains as indicated in the Course Withdrawal sections of Webster University's undergraduate and graduate catalogs up to and including the Friday of the 6th week of an 8- or 9-week course and the Friday of the 12th week of a semester course.

Please contact if you have any questions regarding the refund schedule or your academic advisor regarding adding, dropping, or withdrawing from a course.
