'W' Grades This Spring

Friday, February 12, 2021; 9:00 a.m.

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

As we continue to deal with the pandemic and the changes it has brought to our learning environment, we would like to share with you some information about ‘W’ grades this semester.

In order to assist students as much as possible, we have pushed back the deadline to drop a class with a grade of ‘W’ to Friday, April 23, at 4:30 p.m. In addition, any ‘W’ grades earned during the spring 2021 semester will not count toward the usual limited allotment of ‘W’ grades afforded to students. We believe these changes will help our students as they make decisions about classes and grades at the end of the semester.

These changes also apply to the School of Veterinary Medicine.

Students at the Paul M. Hebert Law Center should check the Law Center’s academic calendar for information on how these updates will impact them and can contact the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs of the Law Center if they have any questions. 

LSU Online students should contact their Learner Concierge with any questions regarding this policy update, as different deadline dates apply to our fully online programs.
