Withdrawing from Courses
The deadline to drop a course from your schedule is the Friday of the first week of classes. After the drop deadline has passed, students may withdraw from a course by submitting a Student Initiated Withdrawal from a Class form at the Office of the Registrar. A withdrawn course will remain on a transcript with a grade of “W” (Withdrawn) and is not eligible for a tuition refund or a replacement course.
Please note: If you receive financial aid or veterans’ benefits, withdrawal from a course(s) may reduce your eligibility for aid. If you are an international student, withdrawal from a course(s) may jeopardize your F-1 Visa status.
The deadlines for withdrawing from a course are July 15, 2016, for summer 2016, and November 4, 2016, for fall 2016.
Withdrawal from the College
If you need to withdraw from the college anytime after completing the check-in process, you are required to complete a Withdrawal from the College form in order to be officially withdrawn from the term. There are two locations to do this:
- For U.S. citizens (or permanent residents) who are withdrawing from the college for any reason other than a medical or mental health issue, please go to the Office of the Registrar.
- For international students and any student withdrawing from the college for medical or mental health reasons, please go to the Counseling and Advising Center.
Students who withdraw by the end of the fourth week of the fall or spring semesters are entitled to a credit of part of their tuition on the basis of assessing 20% of the semester’s tuition per week of attendance. After the fourth week no credit will be made. Students who withdraw by the end of the third week of classes in the summer semester are entitled to a credit of part of their tuition on the basis of assessing 25% of the semester’s tuition per week of attendance. After the third week, no credit will be made. No deduction is made for temporary absence, nor is any credit granted if you are suspended, dismissed or leave the college without officially withdrawing.
Financial aid awards may be prorated upon withdrawal from the college. Contact the Office of Financial Aid for more information.
International students in F-1 status will affect their immigration status by withdrawing from the college. These students should consult their international advisor in the Counseling and Advising Center prior to submitting a Withdrawal from the College form.
