UCN announces extension of voluntary withdrawal date

December 18, 2020
The University College of the North has extended their voluntary withdrawal date to allow students to withdraw from Fall Term courses as late as January 8th. The move is intended to alleviate some of the pressures students are facing due to the pandemic. Extending the withdrawal date allows students more control over their GPAs through allowing them to withdraw from courses without academic penalty. “This is a very stressful time for students,” said Dan Smith, VP Academic and Research at UCN. “The delay in the VW date allows students to make choices that will affect their academic careers for the better while giving them some relief from the pressures that they face during the pandemic.” UCN (MB)
