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 University Withdrawal Procedures), the Office of the Bursar will make any appropriate adjustments to your financial account.

Withdrawal Schedules for Reduction of Charges

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