Frequently Asked Questions
Is a 'W' the same as a 'WU'?
No. A 'WU' (Withdrawal Unauthorized) indicates that an enrolled student did not withdraw from the course, but failed to complete course requirements. It is used when, in the judgment of the instructor, completed assignments or course activities, or both, were insufficient to make normal evaluation of academic performance possible. A 'WU' could also mean that you enrolled in a class, but never attended. For GPA purposes, a 'WU' is equivalent to 'F'.
