Withdrawal From the University

Withdrawal From the University2019-05-09T10:39:58-05:00

Withdrawing from all classes
Prior to the official end of the add/drop period, students may drop all classes on-line or by notifying the Registrar’s Office, Eder 102, in writing (include name, student i.d. number, last date of attendance, signature and contact information). The effective date of withdrawal will be the date on which the written notification is received by the Registrar’s Office.

Refer to the chart below for relevant transcript activity deadline dates for the current semester. Since honorable withdrawal is ordinarily required for transfer from one college to another, a student should not discontinue his or her college work without formal withdrawal. Students cannot drop completed classes.

Students completely withdrawing from school will receive a refund of tuition and fees assessed, based upon the current semester’s withdrawal refund schedule. Withdrawal refunds are computed based upon the date the Registrar’s Office receives the completed/correctly executed withdrawal form. Withdrawal computations are not effective the date the student stops attending classes. The refund must be claimed during the semester in which the refund applies. Students receiving financial assistance may be required to pay back all or a portion of funds received according to Federal/State regulation(s) or institutional policies. Financial Aid Exit Counseling is required to be completed within 30 days of withdrawal. Failure to complete Exit Counseling will result in a hold on the student’s academic transcript and will prevent future registration in classes.
