Choosing whether to Graduate with Class or not depends on the reason for the student withdrawal as well as the school's policy. For example, a student withdraws from a school when his family moves at the end of his 11th grade year. He has an established relationship with the school and also with his classmates. The school might flag the student as “graduate with class,” rather than just a past student, so that the student would appear in reports and could receive information geared towards alumni of the class.
