New Procedure for Withdrawal

(dropping all classes)

In order to better serve the students of the University of Missouri-St. Louis, and assist them in meeting their educational goals, students will now be asked to complete an online survey before withdrawing from all classes through their self-service student center in My View.


When attempting to drop your last class, you will receive an error message containing a link to the withdrawal survey.  Once you click on the link and complete the survey, the Registrar’s Office will be notified and process the withdrawal with the effective date of the survey completion.

In addition, you will receive a withdrawal notification email to confirm receipt of your intent to withdrawal.

The withdrawal survey link is https://cf.umsl.edu/webapps/ITS/withdrawal_survey/login.cfm

Important Advising Note

All new degree-seeking students must see an advisor before registering for classes. Your advisor will give you a copy of your degree audit (DARS) report.

To receive an updated copy of your degree audit report, your "roadmap" toward a degree, you are strongly encouraged to continue to meet with an advisor prior to each registration. This reduces the risk of completing unnecessary coursework.
