Streamlining the Hardship Withdrawal Process


As part of our ongo­ing effort printer_1-1024x777to reduce paper-use and enhance access for stu­dents, the Office of the Reg­is­trar is pleased to announce the launch of a new online Hard­ship With­drawal form for stu­dents. The new form, crafted by the Office of the Registrar’s Pub­lic Infor­ma­tion Spe­cial­ist and the Registrar’s Web Devel­oper, reduces the han­dling and use of paper for both stu­dents and staff dur­ing the hard­ship process.

Before this new tool was launched, doc­u­men­ta­tion and forms had to be mailed, faxed, or sub­mit­ted in-person by stu­dents to uni­ver­sity offices. Stu­dents can now sub­mit all infor­ma­tion and doc­u­men­ta­tion via online forms and elec­tronic doc­u­ment uploads. Stu­dents unable to use this online form can still sub­mit HW peti­tions using the paper form UW Form 1707.
