Update to the Automatic W Deadline

For the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, IU Bloomington has extended the auto-W deadline for withdrawal from individual courses to the close of business on the last Friday before the scheduled final exam for that course.

Check with your advisor to discuss the implications of a late drop for your academic progress. Connect with Student Central regarding the impacts on financial aid such as failing to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress. 

During the extended auto-W deadline, students will continue to receive a grade of W. Review the dates below to determine the application in One.IU you will use to complete your schedule changes.
