Withdrawing from a Class
To withdraw from a class, use your mtu.edu email to contact the Registrar's office at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information: your name, M-Number, and the course number of the class from which you would like to withdraw (for example: MA0975).
Students should always work with their academic advisor and financial aid to make sure withdrawing from a class does not have an unexpected impact on progress or rate of completion. Students do not need advisor communication to drop a co-curricular course. First-year students, refer to these instructions to withdraw from courses for summer semester 2020.
