To officially withdraw from the University of Miami, Non-Degree students are required to:

  • Notify the 'Canes Success Center by emailing success@miami.edu

Students who request a complete withdrawal from a major semester (Fall or Spring) will need to reapply to be eligible to enroll for any future semesters.
