What is the difference between a “Withdraw Passing” (WP) and a “Withdraw Failing” (WF)?

A “WP” has no effect on the GPA whereas a “WF” is the same as an F and is calculated as a failing grade in the GPA. If your petition for a Late Withdrawal is approved, each course of the petition is assigned a “WP” or “WF” based on the professor(s) input. Talk to your professor before pursuing a Late Withdrawal petition.
