To withdraw from a single course, or from all courses (complete withdrawal), it is necessary to access the registration functions online via the MyYSU Portal - Registration. It is the student's responsibility to confirm that the withdrawal was correctly processed, and the course(s) is (are) deleted. Nonattendance of class, or notification to the instructor or department does not constitute official withdrawal. For information about reduction or refund of fees and charges, please contact the Student One Stop at 330-941-6000.
Complete Withdrawal from the University*
Procedure: The student who wishes to withdraw from all courses in a particular term must access the registration system on the MyYSU Portal, or come to the Registration Office (Meshel Hall). Any student receiving Title IV aid should seek advisement from the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships prior to processing a complete withdrawal. A complete withdrawal may be executed before classes or after the term starts through the last day to withdraw with a "W." Please consult the academic calendar or the MyYSU Portal for deadlines.
Eligibility for future registrations:
- A new applicant who withdraws from all courses prior to the first day of the term will not receive notice for future registrations unless the person requests that the Office of Undergraduate Admissions (Sweeny Hall) defer the application to a future term.
- A former YSU student who withdraws from all courses prior to the first day of the term will not receive notice for future registrations unless the person requests that the Record's Office (Jones Hall) defer the application to a future term.
- A current undergraduate student withdrawing on or after the first day of the term will receive notice of future registrations for one academic year.
Please note: All notification will take place via the MyYSU Portal.
On occasion, a student voluntarily withdrawing from the University may need a letter staing the conditions of his/her withdrawal. If a statement of honoralbe withdrawal is needed, the dean of the appropriate college or other appropriate offices (i.e., University Discipline Officer) will furnish one, provided the student is of good character, has a satisfactory record of conduct, has no financial obligations to the University, and is withdrawing voluntarily for acceptable reasons; and provided that the student, if withdrawing during a term, follows the official procedure for a change of registration.
Any student who is called involuntarily to active duty should follow the guidelines below. If a student must leave immediately, he or she may authorize another person to act on his or her behalf. A letter signed by the student or a power of attorney is required. The Office of the Registrar will accept a faxed or mailed request to withdraw. To send the request, please see the information below.
