Comprehensive Student Report (Graduate)

In the Reporting Center under the "GR Graduate Data" section, there is now a new Student Records & Status "Comprehensive Student Report" that includes graduate student information similar to the Dynamic Student Report found in GLOW.  Information such as visa status, GPA, qualifying exam status, advancement filing dates, and other information will be shown. Appointment history will be displayed in a separate report.

Students

Withdrawal Request

The Withdrawal form under the "Add a Withdrawal Request" link now allows students to withdraw from classes prior to the start of instruction for a term and have the withdrawal be processed as a Cancellation. Students who plan on not attending a particular term must submit a withdrawal form.

  • Now, the withdrawal form can be submitted prior to the first day of instruction of a term and will be processed as a cancellation.
  • As before, withdrawal forms submitted on or after the first day of instruction will be routed to the student’s college advisors for approval. If approved, the withdrawal will be processed as a “Withdrawal” and carry financial penalties.

Important: If you have any questions about the Withdrawal forms or process, please contact the Office of the Registrar.
