Withdrawal Policy/Tuition Adjustments
Students are responsible for their registrations and withdrawals. Once officially enrolled, students accept financial responsibility for payment of all charges in connection to their registration. Failure to officially withdraw from a course may result in a grade of “WF” as well as incur financial obligation for the course as well as additional collection, attorney, late fees and interest charges. To withdraw from a course, the student must submit the appropriately completed form to the Office of the Registrar. The date of receipt of the formal written notification will be the effective date of withdrawal used to calculate any tuition reimbursement.
If you are withdrawing after the midterm date of the semester, you must obtain signatures from all your course instructors.
Effective, Spring 2012, never attending a course will result in 100% credit of tuition and fees.
Tuition deposit, fees and room and board are not refundable.
Students should be aware that withdrawal from one or more courses may affect some, or possibly all, financial aid awards; therefore, it is prudent to understand the consequences of the withdrawal before formally submitting the paperwork. Financial aid awards will be revoked upon withdrawal should the withdrawal affect the eligibility enrollment status.
As of Winter/Spring 2015: Reimbursement of tuition only will be granted in accordance with the following schedule:
|Fall and Spring Semester*||Reimbursement/Reduction of Tuition Liability|
|First week of class||100% credit of tuition / 0% credit of fees|
|Second week of class||65% credit of tuition / 0% credit of fees|
|Third week of class||40% credit of tuition / 0% credit of fees|
|Fourth week of class||20% credit of tuition / 0% credit of fees|

Withdrawal Affects on Financial Assistance
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 will not be entitled to a refund until all federal Title IV programs are adjusted and all outstanding charges have been paid.
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.
