Late Withdrawal Without Documentation


U of T Engineering's late withdrawal policy has been updated for the 2020 Fall Term and 2021 Winter Term. Details on the policy changes for the 2020 Fall Term and 2021 Winter Term are located in the "Grades and Final Summative Assessments" section of the 2020 Fall Term & 2021 Winter Term U of T Engineering Undergraduate FAQs.

The Faculty's policy on late withdrawal from a course without documentation applies to students who wish to withdraw from courses after the withdrawal deadline, but prior to the last day of classes.

You may make a request for late withdrawal without documentation through your Academic Advisor. A petition to the Committee on Examinations is not required.

If your request is approved, "LWD" will appear on your transcript for all courses dropped using this policy; the course will have no effect on your GPA, sessional average or other elements of your academic record.

Students in Years 2-4

Students are allowed to drop, without penalty, a maximum of two half-credit (0.5 wt) elective courses. This would be a three-year total and does not include courses dropped under this policy in Year 1. This applies to technical electives, CS/HSS electives and free electives taken at the University of Toronto.

Students in Year 1 Engineering Science

Students are allowed to drop a maximum of three half-credit courses in:
a) Term 1F as part of a transition to term 1S in a core-8 program or
b) Term 1S as part of a transition to term 2F in a core-8 program

Students in Year 1 Core 8/Track 1

Students are allowed to drop a maximum of two half-credit courses over the combined 1F and 1S terms.
