Withdrawal from Law School

Students who are considering either withdrawing from a term or permanently withdrawing from a UIC Law School JD, LLM, or MJ degree program should consult UIC Law’s Withdrawal Policy.  Students should also review the Academic Calendar for term add/drop deadlines.  Instructions for dropping all courses in the online XE Registration system via my.UIC.edu can be found on the University Registrar’s Registration Policies/Procedures for Fall/Spring withdrawal.  Please note, once in XE Registration, students must select the “Web Drop Course” action for each of their term courses.
