Withdrawal Information

If after registering for classes, you decide to withdraw from a course or leave the university, you must contact the Dean's Office of your major college. Once all the proper withdrawal procedures have been followed (see Semester Withdrawal Procedures), the Office of the Bursar will make any appropriate adjustments to your financial account.

Note: You can look up enrollment deadlines (e.g., last day to drop the class on your own online) associated to your classes in MyNIU. For a step-by-step guide, see MyNIU Last Drop Day Lookup How-to Guide.

Withdrawal Schedules for Reduction of Charges

Merely ceasing to attend classes does not cancel enrollment or qualify you for a reduction of course charges.  

For more information regarding the withdrawal refund policy and the calculation of the reduction (refund) amount, please review the following course catalogs:

Students receiving financial aid and withdrawing should review the financial aid and scholarship policies to determine the impact of withdrawing on financial aid eligibility.
