1. Reminder: Withdrawal Deadline

The withdrawal deadline is Monday, March 20, at 11:59 p.m. Remember it is best to discuss a course withdrawal with your professor and your advisor before making the final decision. If you choose to withdraw from a course, log onto Athena to do so.

Holds on your record may prevent you from withdrawing. You can look up holds in Athena and contact the corresponding office to resolve the issue and clear the hold. If the hold is cleared the day of the deadline and you experience difficulty withdrawing, contact the Office of the Registrar immediately. Students can contact the Office of the Registrar at reghelp@uga.edu or by going to the office in person and presenting a photo ID. No assistance will be provided to students who do not make contact with the Registrar’s Office by 12:00 p.m. the day after the withdrawal deadline.
