Seattle University utilizes an early alert system called Redhawk SOAR that is designed to connect students experiencing difficulties with campus resources and support. If a student is not attending classes, struggling with assignments and tests, or experiencing urgent personal concerns or issues, a faculty or staff member may submit an academic alert about this student. This alert prompts an advisor to contact the student so they can provide them with resources, support, and next steps. Learn more about the alert system by logging into MySeattleU and selecting Redhawk SOAR from the "Academics" section of the menu.
After the withdrawal deadline, withdrawal from classes are only permitted in the case of a personal hardship. A Hardship Withdrawal is granted by the Assistant Dean for Student Academic Support for reasons relating to death of a family member, catastrophic illness in the family, or an illness and/or injury to the student. Hardship Withdrawals may be granted for one or multiple classes in a current or past quarter. In addition, students granted a Hardship Withdrawal may be required to take additional action before being allowed to re-enroll in a following term.
To request a Hardship Withdrawal, please follow these steps:
