Campus in the Fall

Withdrawal Policy

Withdrawal Policy

The following information refers to withdrawal from the university for non-disciplinary reasons or your cancellation activity in any course. Complete withdrawal or schedule changes made after classes begin will affect your financial liability and your financial aid eligibility. Contact the Director of Student Accounts and the Financial Aid Office with your questions. Please note that tuition and fee liability is based upon the length of your course and the date your registration cancellation becomes effective. JTerm calculations and mini-courses will follow the Summer Sessions chart below.

*** Important Message for Financial Aid Recipients:

When a student withdraws prior to completing over 60% of the semester, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of Title IV funds they were awarded. Students that receive Title IV federal student aid/funds (such as Stafford/Plus loans, PELL, SEOG, Teach, and federal military benefits) are awarded under the assumption that they will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. For additional information regarding the repayment of Title-IV federal aid, please call or email contact the Student Accounts Office
