A student who wishes to withdraw from a course must complete a
Change of Program form and have it signed by the appropriate
Academic Dean. The date of withdrawal shall be the date the
withdrawal is processed by the Office of the Registrar.
Withdrawal from courses may entitle the student to a credit of
tuition. This policy refers only to tuition. Fees are not
refundable. Please refer to the official Tuition Refund Schedule
for the semester. The Tuition Refund Schedule is based on the
official start and end of the semester, regardless of when a
particular course may start or end. Undergraduate tuition for 12 to
18 credits is set at a block rate during the fall and spring
semesters, therefore, during the withdrawal period in fall and
spring, there is no adjustment to tuition if a student withdraws
classes within that range.
A withdrawal from courses may also affect the student’s
eligibility for financial assistance. Students who are recipients
of federal Title IV funds and who withdraw prior to the 60% point
in the term will be subject to a recalculation of Title IV aid
eligibility. Eligibility for all other institutional, state and
external awards will be determined on an individual basis.
Students should allow an appropriate length of time from the
date of filing a Change of Program with the Dean for refund claims
to be approved and processed.
Students will not be entitled to a refund until all federal
Title IV programs are adjusted and all outstanding charges have
Students are considered in attendance until they officially
withdraw from school or are requested to do so by a Dean. Students
who leave school voluntarily or drop a course, must do so through
the proper channels or otherwise risk assuming full tuition
charges. Students who fail to formally withdraw may also be
responsible for repaying all or part of the financial aid funds
received in the term.
Please consult your Dean for additional details or questions
regarding this withdrawal process.
