Section 8: Withdrawing from a Programme

Published for 2019-20

1.Students who are thinking about withdrawing from their programme, including students who are considering transferring to a programme at another institution, should first discuss their options with their Personal Tutor or Programme Leader.
2.If a student wishes to permanently withdraw from their programme, whether or not they wish to transfer to a programme at another institution, they must submit an application via the online form in Portico stating the effective date of withdrawal.
3.Applications must be considered by the Department/ Division in the first instance. 
4. The Department/ Division should forward supported applications to the Faculty Tutor for final approval. 
5.If approval is granted, the Faculty Tutor must notify examboards@ucl.ac.uk to formally close the student’s record.
6.The student will receive a transcript for the credits completed at UCL prior to withdrawal, after the applicable Board of Examiners has ratified the results.
7.Once a student has withdrawn they will not normally be permitted to re-register on the same programme at UCL. Exceptionally, the Faculty Tutor may permit a student to re-register, and formally ask examboards@ucl.ac.uk to re-open the student’s record.
