Considering Withdrawal?

 The University of Montana

 

Retro-Active Withdrawal Process

Students who withdraw from a previous term or the current term following the 14th week of attendance will need to complete a blue "Petiton for Withdrawing After the 14th Week of Attendance".  The form can be obtained at the Registration Counter in Griz Central or on the Registrar's Office webpage at www.umt.edu/registrar. Students will need to complete the below steps before turning in their withdrawal form into the Registration Counter in Griz Central.

If the withdrawal is for the current term or the most recent term the student attended, it will not need to be reviewed by the Academic Appeals Subcommittee.  If the student has completed at leasts one term since the term in which they are petitioning to withdraw, it will need to be reviewed by the Academic Appeals Subcommittee. 

  1. Obtain the form from the Registration Counter in Griz Central or on the Registrar's Office webpage at www.umt.edu/registrar.
  2. Fill out your demographic information on the form (in the box at the top of the form).
  3. State your reason for withdrawal (a separate page or write on the back of the form maybe attached if provided space is not enough room).
  4. Student needs to sign the form
  5. Student's academic advisor needs to review the appeal and sign the form either recommending or denying the approval of the petition.
  6. Chair of the student's major will also need to review the appeal and sign the form either recommending or denying the approval of the petition.
  7. Dean of the student's major will also need to review the appeal and sign the form either recommending or denying the approval of the petition.
  8. If the form does not need to be forwarded to the Academic Appeals Subcommittee (see info above) then the Dean's approval/denial is the final decision.
  9. If the form does need to be approved by the Academic Appeals Subcommittee, the Registration Counter will forward it to the committee for their review.
