This form is used for students in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (regardless of which department is teaching the course) that are seeking to apply for a W grade for a course in the current term.

W Grade Policy The W grade option is available after the last day to drop a course through the last day of classes for each term. A final grade of a W is awarded for each course where this policy is applied.  Students are permitted to use a W grade for up to three courses during their academic career at Virginia Tech.
Meet with your advisor to discuss the change that you want to make.  All W grade requests require an advisor’s recommendation.

  • Use this form if you would like to withdraw from a course after the drop deadline.
  • If you have used your 3 W grades, the Associate Dean cannot approve your request. The W grade policy is set by the University.
  • Your course may continue to show in Canvas after you request a W grade. The course will remain on your schedule. In HokieSpa, it will have the grade mode of "Course Withdraw." A grade of W for the course will show up on your transcript after the end of the semester.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
