International Students: International students are eligible to petition for a retroactive withdrawal however, because there may be visa implications, must speak to an academic advisor in International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) in order for your petition to be processed. 
Military Affiliated Students are also eligible but must speak with Veteran and Military Affairs before moving forward in this process.

Your petition will not be considered complete until we receive an email confirmation from both an ISSS advisor, or VMA advisor, and yourself that you have spoken. 

Check Your CU Boulder Email

The Retroactive Withdrawal Coordinator communicates with students and sends notifications of the committee's decision (an official approval or denial letter) via the student's CU Boulder email address. If you no longer have a CU Boulder email, be sure to include that information in your petition.
