Notification of withdrawal must be in writing, and becomes effective only at the time it is received in the Registrar’s office. Telephone calls will not be accepted and failure to attend class does not constitute withdrawal. Students will receive a confirmation of their withdrawals by using this official form. If e-mailing or faxing a withdrawal, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the Registrar’s office to ensure receipt.
Refunds will be given on the basis of the date and time notification is received in the Registrar’s office. Please refer to the refund schedule, which can be found in the Academic Calendar located on the Registrar’s Web site. Tuition, not fees, is refundable in accordance with the drop/add period on the academic calendar. When a student withdraws prior to the first class meeting, tuition is refunded in full. During the drop/add period, students are eligible for an 80% refund on dropped classes. After the drop/add period, a graduate student may withdraw from a course by the deadline outlined in the Academic Calendar and receive a grade of ‘W’. No refunds will be given for withdrawn classes after the drop/add deadline unless the class has not met.
