Undergraduate Students wishing to official withdraw from the University should note:


Students who wish to leave the university are eligible for withdrawing from the university. To officially withdraw from the University of Miami, undergraduate students are required to meet with an Advisor at the 'Canes Success Center. Walk-in appointments are available Monday - Friday from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM or by appointment by calling (305) 284-4500 or emailing success@miami.edu. The 'Canes Success Center is located on the 2nd Floor of the University Center, Suite 2275 (also known as "The Nest").

Inactive Status

Inactive Status is for students who are planning to leave the university without studying elsewhere, and planning to return to UM. Students may utilize status for a maximum of two (2) semesters. Students who have maintained their Inactive Status DO NOT have to reapply for Readmission. Please verify eligibility of the inactive status before submitting an Inactive Status Notification Form to the BGS Program at BGS@miami.edu.


If a student has missed a major semester (e.g. Fall or Spring) at UM, the student must apply to be readmitted to UM through the Readmission Application.
