Withdrawal and Add/Drop Policy

A reduction of tuition and fees is calculated when a student drops classes or withdraws from school. The percentage used in the calculation will be based on the week during which the class was officially dropped. These dates and percentages can be found on the attached schedule of dates. Students withdrawing from the university after the start of classes will not receive a refund for residence hall or board fees.  Deposits are returned in accordance with the agreements under which they are made.
