Withdrawal from University
Students who wish to withdraw from the University, without the intention of returning, must submit this University
Withdrawal form to the Registrar’s Office. As an alternative to withdrawal, those students who need to take time off
from their studies, with the intention of returning, should consult the Leave of Absence form.
Withdrawal will be effective upon receipt of the University Withdrawal form or upon the date a student completes
withdrawal from all courses. Students who withdraw after the add/drop period, and prior to the end of the 12th week
of the semester, will receive a grade of W (Withdrawal) on the transcript for each course in which the student is
currently enrolled. Thereafter, students will receive grades as assigned by the instructors. Note: The deadline to
withdraw and receive a grade of W (Withdrawal) is extended to May 1, 2020 for the spring 2020 semester.
When official notification has not been submitted, students who begin attendance in the semester, but then stop
attending all courses, will be withdrawn from the University within 30 days following the end of the semester and will
receive grades as assigned by the instructors; however, financial aid return calculations will be performed as of the
midpoint of the semester, or the last date of attendance, whichever is later. Students who do not return the following
semester and have not taken a leave of absence, will be withdrawn from the University within 30 days of the start of the
Students may withdraw from the University for 100% refund of tuition and fees, less any non-refundable fees, prior to
the start of the term. Thereafter, students should consult the Refund Policy for the impact on charges. Financial Aid
recipients should contact the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships, as withdrawal may reduce financial aid awards,
which could result in the student owing funds to the University and/or government, and to discuss loan repayment and
exit counseling requirements.
Under extenuating circumstances, or due to qualified military service leave, students may file an Appeal of the policies
outlined above, within 30 days following the end of the last semester enrolled.
