Withdrawal

A student wishing to withdraw from all courses before the end of a semester or summer term for which he/she is registered must clear his record by filing an application for voluntary withdrawal on a form which can be secured online at: Withdrawal Form or from the Office of the Registrar. This is a withdrawal from the semester, not the university. Students must process a "withdrawal form" if they are only enrolled in one class and they wish to withdraw from the semester.

This action must be taken by the date stated for any particular sub-term under the Important Academic Deadlines as the last day to drop a class or withdraw. Any student who withdraws from the University is subject to the conditions outlined in the section regarding Scholastic Probation and Dismissal.

It is the students responsibility to withdraw from classes if they do not plan to attend during the semester in which they have enrolled.

A student has one year from the first day of a semester to appeal a withdrawal refund. Courses withdrawn are counted as attempted hours and count towards the three-peat, 45-hour and 30-hour rule.

Refund of Fees
A student officially withdrawing will receive a refund of his fees according to the following scale:
*Class days refer to the university Class Days, not particular class days. **For example: If a class meets MWF, the 12th class day  is not the 12th day of the students actual class, it is the 12th day of the University Class Days.  See the Academic Calendar Important Academic Deadlines for specific date.
