Permanent Withdrawals

Ryerson Undergraduate students may wish to voluntarily and permanently withdraw from their program studies due to financial, health, personal, academic or other reasons.

Students are considered officially Withdrawn in Good Academic Standing, when they obtain the appropriate signatures and return the completed application to The Office of the Registrar Client Services in the ServiceHub (POD 150) by the appropriate deadline date. The final deadline date to submit a Permanent Withdrawal Request is the last day to Withdraw from a program (No Refund). Please refer to the Significant Dates section of the current Undergraduate Calendar for deadlines.

If a student wishes to re-enter the program at a later time, an application for re-admission must be submitted to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Re-admission is not guaranteed.
