Students impacted by COVID-19 who are unable to continue coursework in one or all of their enrolled courses may petition for an academic withdrawal. Courses from which you have been withdrawn remain on your academic record with a grade of "W", but are not calculated into your grade point average (GPA).

If you receive a W (withdrawal), WU (withdrawal unauthorized), or I (incomplete) when grades are posted for a semester, your Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) for financial aid eligibility will not be negatively affected. However, if you withdraw from one or more courses after a semester is over, these grades will negatively affect your SAP.

If you need to withdraw from all of your courses due to COVID-19, you will not be required to return federal financial aid you may have received; however, you may be required to return state and institutional aid depending on when in the semester you withdraw. For more information, see the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships COVID-19 page (

Students wishing to withdraw from one or more courses should submit a Petition for Late Schedule Adjustment found at and all appropriate supporting documentation. 

Students who have questions regarding how financial aid may be impacted by withdrawing should contact the Student Financial Center (

The Center for Student Rights and Responsibilities acts on behalf of the president of San Diego State University regarding all aspects of student conduct, including behaviors related to both academic and non-academic circumstances, that occur on campus, in the off-campus surrounding community, off-campus community-sponsored events, and online sites. In support of the mission of SDSU, the Center for Student Rights and Responsibilities (CSRR) educates campus community members about the Student Code of Conduct and assists in the positive development of students. 

Academic integrity is paramount. Faculty are diligent when monitoring instances of cheating, plagiarism, unauthorized group work, and other forms of academic dishonesty. Faculty have been reminded that all instances of academic dishonesty must be reported to CSRR.  Allegations of academic dishonesty will be promptly investigated, and may result in student conduct consequences including warning, probation, suspension, and expulsion.

If you have questions about course material, assignments, quizzes, or exams, please do not hesitate to contact your instructor. Additionally, the campus has implemented new policies to support student personal safety and well-being, and that of the entire SDSU community during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Students who do not adhere to these COVID-19 Student Policies, and do not comply with the directives of their faculty, will be directed to leave the classroom, and may be referred to the Center for Student Rights and Responsibilities.

If you have questions or would like more information about the Center for Student Rights and Responsibilities, please contact Eric Rogers at (619) 594-3069 or [email protected]. Voicemail is checked hourly Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
