A student may withdraw from the University at anytime prior to the twelfth week of
classes. To implement an official total withdrawal from the University, a student must
file a completed Total Withdrawal Request Form with the Office of Enrollment
Management/Records. A student who leaves the University without filing a completed
Total Withdrawal Request Form may not be eligible to receive tuition refunds and may
receive failing grades in the courses for which he/she is registered. A student who
withdraws officially from the University may be eligible to receive a total or partial
tuition refund in accordance with the University’s Schedule of Financial Adjustments
and/or Refunds. Students may be required to repay federal funds received in a given
semester as a result of total withdrawal from the University.
Students registering for courses during General Registration for the upcoming
semester, who decide prior to the first day of classes of the next semester that they will
not attend the university, must complete a Total Withdrawal Request Form.
